    Patience: I'm sure someone will get around to it in due course. As Deidre has said, people aren't on here 24/7, and for something so specific as the math involved in refraction, there are probably only a handful of people who can explain it. I...

    Next time use modifier like it is my opinion that they ARE elongated (height wise) in that image. Whereas it is my opinion that the image is far too out of focus to make such an authoritative statement about elongation. In fact I don't see the...

    I don't care if anybody reads this. That is not why I did this. Then again if someone reads it who can answer the question that would be superb. Fingers crossed. As of now my question remains completely unanswered. Why is the smokestack which...

    I'm only posting this to be funny. It probably isn't but I couldn't resist. Above you said, "But you still didn't learn your lesson. I already pointed out that the ducks in your 'tall' tower shot are grossly elongated also, yet here you continue...

    Sounds good. And I still want to know why the smokestack which should, according to my understanding of globe/refraction mathematics, be below the horizon is above the horizon. Somebody please get me that answer. This is actually quit irritating....

    And I won't use the word definitely any more if that makes a difference. I was using it for emphasis of my consternation not to suggest anything I was saying was definitive. Sorry about that. How about this. "If I were to give my best guess at...

    I meant that statement in a much more vague sense as in more like "I see a lot of that smokestack" or "I'm seeing more of that smokestack than I think I should be able to." I guess I assumed the word sizeable was so vague that I wasn't making any...

    I guess I don't know how else I would word it. Maybe just say I can see some of the smoke stack and for anyone who might look at the thread to say something like look at the image I uploaded and decide for yourself? How's that? I guess I forgot...

    Oh that image. Okay. I can see that I don't even see ducks here. It just looks like blurry blotches with almost no definition at all. That's why I didn't pick up that this was the image. I went back to the video and rolled it a little trying to...

    Karrin Konczal replied to the thread A video called "The Globes End. The New Distance to the Horizon".

    I don't actually have questions about discrepancies in the two screen shots. My question is specifically about the apparent discrepancy between the globe/refraction mathematics and the observation made in this video. I readily admit the...

    I think this is the image of the water birds you are mentioning. I'm sorry I did not respond to that. I just did not see the elongation of the birds. They looked the same to me as they always do. And I've gone back over the image and looked...

    What is misleading? I'll delete or change whatever you recommend.

    I did look at the images of the ducks and I could not see any distortion. I'm a huge outdoor person. I'm at lakes and out hiking all of the time. Those ducks, cranes and egrets just looked like ducks, cranes, and egrets to me.
