    Refraction. was: Bubble Horizon Altitude Corrections
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2004 Jul 6, 11:45 +0100

    Thanks to Frank Reed for explaining further that when he wrote-
    
    "By the way, since you're inland, be
    advised that you should use "sea level" barometric pressure. This differs a
    little from the pressure usually reported in weather reports (but not very much
    unless you're at Denver-like altitudes)."
    
    he intended that local true barometric pressure at the observer's altitude
    should be used, not the pressure at sea-level. He could have fooled me (and
    did). I had quite misunderstood his meaning. After the clarification, we
    now seem to agree on that point.
    
    
    George.
