# Gordon metric revisited

We show that Gordon metric belongs to a larger class of geometries, which are responsible to describe the paths of accelerated bodies in moving dielectrics as geodesics in a metric $\hat q_{\mu\nu}$ different from the background one. This map depends only on the background metric and on the motion of the bodies under consideration.
