i am little confused, perhaps i am misunderstanding you. the horizon distance is subject to height of the viewing perspective, and assuming a 6 foot tall person, at sea level, the horizon should only be about 3 miles away. i did the calculation myself so i might be in error. now, i make the horizon at sea level of teledahn, and viewed by a person six feet tall, to be 135 meters away. you will have to forgive me for using metric and us customary units, i use metric for calculations, but i dont really think in it.

anyway, i do some work with simple perspective tricks, and i think the illusion would likely hold, except for when you change elevation. if one were to watch the horizon as one travels up to sharpers office i think that would give it away, but i cant say for sure, my thinking is that the higher the viewing point in relation to the radius of the planet, the lower the horizon would be in the sky, that is to say the lower the viewing angle. we could calculate that easily and see how much of a difference it would make.

more than that though, i would think that the rather than a straight horizon line, it would be noticeably curved.

perhaps teledahn is flat!
