# FAQ/Horizon on a Flat Earth

## Horizon on a Flat Earth?

If the Earth were flat, WOULD THERE BE A HORIZON?

If the Earth were flat, there would still be a horizon, appearing almost identical to what we see in reality, and to what globular enthusiasts have convinced you that you would see if you lived on a ball.

For a person who is 5'6" tall, the horizon on a flat Earth would be about 0.04° higher than on a spherical Earth. This difference is roughly equivalent to the width of a mechanical pencil lead held at arm’s length.

On a perfectly infinite Earth, you would expect, perhaps, that the horizon would remain level, with 180° of sky and 180° of ground visible. Once we take into account the limits of human vision, acuity, attenuation and atmospheric affects, we can say it should be CLOSE to that. In reality, when we look and when we measure, 179.92° of ground is visible. If the earth were curved, this number would be much lower. This is nearly identical to a flat earth expectation.

### Lets do some math...

The mathematical explanation involves using trigonometry to calculate the horizon angle on a spherical Earth.

- Earth's radius: =6,378,100 meters
- Person's Height 5'6": (=1.68 meters)
- angle between the 'true horizon' and the 'ideal horizon' (fake and made up for globularists to play pretend) is calculated as

Plugging in the values, theta is approximately 0.04°. This calculation demonstrates the negligible difference in our prediction for a flat earth and the results.

In short, IT WOULD LOOK IDENTICAL TO WHAT YOU SEE EVERY DAY. Welcome to Flat Earth.
