    Marcel,
    And I still do not understand at all: what does parallax have to do at all
    with visibility of Moon at a moonrise/set?
    To me his explanation simply makes no sense.
    Sorry for my stupidity, perhaps someone can explain, or give a reference?
    Preferably with a picture of the last ray from the upper edge still
    visible, and the next ray which is already not.
    
    It seems to me that there whould be the horizon between these two rays:-)
    
    
    Alex.
