Abstract

A thin shell can separate an interior region of Riemannian geometry from an exterior spherically symmetric Weyl space. We explore the possibility that a charged particle propagating in the gravitational field outside this thin shell could emit Cerenkov radiation. Some astrophysical scenarios in which such effect could arise are discussed.
