    Marcel,

    Unfortunately I did not pay attention at the setting Sun
    (being occupied with Venus altitude). So I cannot say how it
    looked.
    
    The record of the observations shows however that the coinditions
    lasted several hours (at least 4), with roughtly the same errors,
    including some time after the sunset.
    
    I still have to read the paper you refer to carefully.
    
    Next time I will carry a camera and fotograph the horizon
    near the time of the altitude observation:-)
    
    Alex.
