A great view to start the week Lynette. Have a good one. Allan
Thank you very much, Allan. I hope you have a good week. Cheers.
That’s about 225 miles away. Do you think we can see the curve of the Earth? I feel like I can… Great picture.
You mean it’s not flat after all?
Hahaha. 😁 Good one!
Hi Jacqui, 25,000 ft. is equivalent to about 5 miles, but the appearance of distance in an aircraft can be very deceptive. The aircraft was banked to the right when I took this photo, the sun was going down behind some cloud and the horizon was partially obscured, so any sightings of curvature in those conditions would be an optical illusion. I have seen curvature from 35,000 ft. of altitude, though. Cheers.
Shoot. I googled that distance. Can’t believe anything anymore! That’s interesting about the curvature, though.
35,000 ft. would be about the minimum for seeing curvature. Cheers.
Wonderful photo. Happy Spring!
Thank you very much, Ally! Happy spring to you, too. 🙂
Thank you, Linda!
