    Re: Refraction.
    From: Fred Hebard
    Date: 2004 Jul 7, 13:00 -0400

    George,
    
    I for one am enjoying the discussion.  I am rather convinced, being a
    non expert in these matters, by John's arguments, but I wonder whether
    he would be so kind as to address the issue of a ship on the horizon,
    for instance.  Would it always appear higher than it really is?
    
    Thanks,
    
    Fred
