Use this calculator to calculate and visualize what we can see of a target of a certain size and distance from any observer altitude, taking refraction into account. You can compare the results between flat earth and globe earth. Many more values are calculated and you can customize and store the settings.

Note: Values marked with a * are not dependent on Refraction in reality. The marked values show the apparent values if refraction is not zero. So to display the real values, set Refraction = 0. This is true for all Horizon Data as well.

Angular Distance θ: is the angle between the observer, the center of the earth and the nearest target. This angle is used in some Drop calculators, as the Drop x is:

x = R \cdot \big( 1 - \cos( \theta ) \big)
x ' =' 'drop from the surface level
R ' =' 'radius of the earth
\theta ' =' 'angle between observer, the center of the earth and the target

Note that \theta is the same angle as the Tilt of the target object.
