Modern-day expansions on Bedford Canal Experiment

If Rowbottom had introduced a flag of half height into the series, as in the black one that I've added to the illustration, is there any way at all, on a flat plane, that the top of that flag could appear in the sightline across the tops of the others?

Asking this elsewhere usually brings out the flattie buzzwords; perspective, diffraction limits, rayleigh criterion, etc.

What say the folks here?

The illustration shows two sightlines; one upward, to the top of the higher flag, and one horizontal, along the tops of the smaller flags. Are we agreed that a sightline to the top of the black flag would be a downward sightline?

Not Flat. Happy to prove this, if you ask me.

Nearly all flat earthers agree the earth is not a globe.

Nearly?
