Levitation (from Latin levitas, “lightness”) is the process by which a person, an animal or an object is suspended by a physical force against gravity, in a stable position without solid physical contact. A number of different techniques have been developed to levitate matter, including the aerodynamic, magnetic, acoustic, electromagnetic, electrostatic, gas film, and optical levitation methods.

From a great photo series of a concert at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa (CA) by Richard Pechner. The photographer dates the pics in August 1973, but these photos are clearly from (the Summer of) 1983.

Thanks for the correction on the date as it looks like I entered it incorrectly on my photo website. And thanks for the compliment on my work. I love your "Levitation" remark below the picture. Richard Pechner rpechner.com
