    Moon Horizon
    From: Thomas Kleemann
    Date: 2009 May 10, 23:20 +0200

    Hello all,
    
    since the discussions revolve around some practical issues in taking
    sights lately, I want to bring in an puzzlement of my own:
    
    In several works on celnav the authors had stated the bright reflection
    of the moon on oceans surface would obscure the visible horizon at night
    and create a line below it, called moon horizon (at least by some of them).
    
    If I understand the arguments correctly, it must be some kind of effect
    similar to the problems of dip and light distance?
    
    I thought about a function of altitude and height of eye to correct for
    that "shortness of dip"...
    
    Has anyone tried that successfully?
    
    /Thomas.
