    Does google earth pro simulate refraction [No]

    I have been playing around with google earth and I have a quick question does it take refraction into account when making pictures or does it use what would be predict through geometry only?

    Shockwave Shadow and Refraction Spikes

    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icLNtF_ehwo When I sat in the exit row of a plane from Sacramento to Denver. I saw what looked like a glitch in the matrix. A weird spike in the fabric of reality! Turns out it was refraction, the high-pressure shockwave over the wing was acting as a...

    How atmospheric tunelling and refraction really look like in real life.

    A few days ago i witnessed a real life example of atmospheric tunnelling. Due to warm air over cold waters, the skyline of La Rochelle was faintly visible over 50 km away, despite it being normally below the horizon. I've seen this kind of optical phenomenon precisely twice. The air is usually...

    Refraction Variations Over Water to Bell Island

    For fun I'm doing a lot of long distance observations across the ocean. A flat earther made an excellent point on one of my videos: Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtHPqxiscYw&lc=z222wpz4jsnagxygy04t1aokgvojlxjibrylwy0f5g35rk0h00410 (The image below is from #13 and #12 respectively)...

    Demonstrating How Refraction Helps You See Over The Horizon

    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLufSkz-et0 If there were no atmosphere, and somehow the Earth still had oceans, then the curvature of those oceans would be readily apparent, with a pin-sharp horizon cutting off distant objects with mathematical precision. You'd be able to zoom in...

    Observations of Brighton from Worthing Pier

    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCQM9dCtQ2I This rather long (1 hour 40 minutes) video from "Dr John D." documents some observations he made from the end of Worthing Pier to Brighton, 9.6 miles away. It's particularly interesting as Brighton now has a very distinct marker in the form...

    Observations of Mallorca Island and the Earth's Curvature

    The following post was made by @jeranism, using a fake account "PeteShasta". This is a bannable rule violation. I have been watching this forum and the videos made by Eric Dubaz, Jeranism and Mark Sargent for about a year now. I thought the flat earth dudes were ridiculous. Dumbest thing I...

    Explained: Observations of Canigou, Curvature of the Earth & Atmospheric Refraction

    Mick was just on Joe Rogan and spoke heavily on Flat Earth. One thing he said, was that many flat earth researchers incorrectly report observations of distant points. I agree, many people forget to include the observation height or the height of the observed landmark. However, there are some...

    Video of New Orleans Superdome Illustrating Curvature and Refraction

    Views of cities across lakes or bays are an excellent way of observing the curvature of the Earth. The distances are easy to calculate, and the building heights are well known. In many cases there are 3D models of the city buildings in Google Earth, so we can recreate the image there to see if...

    A Coronal Iridescent Contrail

    I took this photo at 3:36 PM, Aug 25, 2015. The plane had just flown past the sun when I noticed this small region of interesting colors in the trail it left. Here you can see the position of the colors relative to the sun. This was a couple of seconds earlier, and the plane is still visible...

    Earth curvature refraction experiments - debunking flat/concave Earth

    I keep being presented with 'earth curvature experiment' videos recently, by flat/concave earth advocates. It seems to be their new favorite "evidence" that Earth is not spherical. Debunking this gets into math which I stink at, regarding refraction. I would like to be sure I have considered...
