Magnification Of The Sun/Moon Near The Horizon

When light of any kind shines through a dense medium it appears larger, or rather gives a greater glare, at a given distance than when it is seen through a lighter medium. This is more remarkable when the medium holds aqueous particles or vapor in solution, as in a damp or foggy atmosphere. You can see this by standing within a few yards of a street lamp, and noticing the size of the light; on going away to many times the distance, the light upon the atmosphere will appear considerably larger. This phenomenon may be noticed, to a greater or less degree, at all times; but when the air is moist and vapory it is more intense. It is evident that at sunrise, and at sunset, the sun's light must shine through a greater length of atmospheric air than at mid-day; besides which, the air near the earth is both more dense, and holds more watery particles in solution, than the higher strata through which the sun shines at noonday; and hence the light must be dilated or magnified, as well as modified in color. So the Sun as it sets towards the horizon, from a viewer's perspective on Earth, simultaneously gets bigger due to the reason given above, AND smaller due to the law of perspective. The net result is what you see.



Notice how the distant lights have a brighter/bigger glare even though they're further away? Here they mention many contributing factors (wavelength, difraction, air pressure, air temperature, width of aperature, altitude, humidity, clarity) all contributing to the net result. The amount/degree to which the Sun/Moon will be magnified (due to the above reasons) and shrink (due to law of perspective) will depend on all of the above. Hence why sometimes you'll see video of the Moon shrinking off into nothingness like here, and sometimes you'll see it magnified like here:







"The Moon’s warm color when seen at lower angles is caused by the relatively larger amount of of atmosphere through which one is observing it as compared to when the moon is right overhead. This additional atmosphere scatters the bluish component of the light of the moon, making the low-lying moon appear redder to the observer’s eyes. If you look later when the moon is higher above the horizon, you’ll see it appears much whiter than earlier in the evening." -ENature.com

Why are not people praising the above post by Eric?
It is without doubt a 100% proof of the Flat Earth...
FFS, it seems that people all want some kind of God acceptance, when it is in fact right before your eyes!

Interesting, the video was created by another Christpsychotic who's goal is to Create flat Earth FACTS around State Sponsored Theism (FICTION). This information is further elaborated by me in the comment section of this ODD video re-dub.

Maybe you can explain why you've returned a second time in a row, to praise Eric for a video he did not create?

Because it is an important video, the content is superb.
Forget who made it, whether he is a religious nut is irrelevant, he never mentions any religious garbage throughout the video anyway.

The trolls always ask to see a video of zooming the Sun back in as it sets to prove it's not disappearing beneath the ball Earth.  Here you go:

The reflection of the sun on the water ALONE disproves curvature. It's one of the simplest testable visible proofs, the reflection going all the way from your feet to the horizon...repeat that on a ball.
