In this paper the properties of solutions of the geodesic equations for a model of a point source of gravity, radiating heat are studied. Geodesic equations are constructed using a metric which is the solution of equations that represent the zero trace of the Ricci tensor. These equations are a generalization of Einstein’s equations in vacuum. They allow to obtain solutions in the form of non-stationary spherically symmetric metrics, whose components are a function of two variables. The ordinary system of differential equations of second order for surveying natural parameter consists of four equations. It can be partially integrated and reduced to a system of two second order differential equations. By substitution method the system is reduced to a pair of differential equations in partial derivatives of the two unknown variables. Finally, we obtain one quasi-linear equation. In the normal case, equations of this type form gaps with limited solutions. However, the numerical calculations show that the solutions can also become unrestricted due to the pecularities in the right parts.
