    Re: dip, dip short, distance off with buildings, etc.

    For what it's worth, I've got heights for the Sears Tower and the Hancock  in
    Chicago. Both buildings have a main roof level and a secondary "mechanical
    penthouse" roof level above it creating a sort of head-and-shoulders look. For
    the Sears, I find that the main roof level is 1450 feet above the level of
    Lake  Michigan. For the Hancock, the main roof level is 1122 feet above the
    lake. I  estimate observational errors of +/-2 feet. For both buildings, I
    estimate that  the higher, smaller roof is 20 feet above the main roof.
