    Re: Mirages, was: Refraction

    Frank,
    
    The star question has been covered to my satisfaction (at least to my
    inexpert standards!).  But I also posed the earth-bound question along
    with the star question.
    
    I am specifically wondering whether a ship could ever appear to sink
    below the horizon even though it actually was above it.  My
    understanding is that normally ships appear higher than they really
    are.
    
    Thanks,
    
    Fred
