Observations of West Hampton Dunes from Mastic Beach, Long Island

Here's an interesting video shot with a P900 from just 10 inches above the water:

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0p6mJHkA_sQ

He shows houses in Westhampton up to about six miles away, where the predicted hidden amount (standard refraction) is 13 feet. Nicest of all are deer grazing on a beach about 3.6 miles away, from 1:16.

Clearly, there's a little hidden, otherwise their snouts would be in the water. Predicted hidden amount at 3.6 miles is 3.3 feet.

The cameraman seems to think that he's shooting to the horizon 6 miles away, and that the beach the deer are on are in front of the houses, but this clearly isn't the case.

Observer: Mastic Beach, end of Jefferson Drive
Deer: Just east of Great Gun
Houses: Westhampton Dunes
The two houses at 6:50 here: 40.775061, -72.726202.

If anyone can identify the distinctive structure with the turret that's behind the deer, that would pinpoint their exact location.

In general, it's just a nice video that some may feel contradicts the globe model, but doesn't. I share it because it's quite a useful example of why the new flat earth 'explanation' of "upward refraction" isn't valid.

The horizon here actually is formed by the low island (Smith Point County Park). I think he might be mistaking that for the beach below the houses.

It's such an interesting video to see how the P900 flattens everything out. I'm now thinking that the deer are a little closer than I originally said, about 2.25 miles from the camera (about here: 40.761011, -72.794410) which is actually west of Great Gun.

In his pan across it isn't easy to tell the distances, and I'm still curious about the distinctive turreted building at 1:36:

It looks like it should be easy to spot, given that it's taller than everything else, but I can't find it. :(
