Chicago Skyline Not a Mirage Experiment
« on: August 12, 2018, 02:46:31 PM »
Related to Bobby's Chicago Skyline thread in Media.

Man takes boat right up to Chicago and films it the entire way across the lake.

I don't think there would have been anything wrong with attaching these to the topic I posted. We're not having in-depth discussions. The videos relate to each other.  JMO.

I agree that the videos are related. I had originally posted it in your thread and deleted my post, as I felt that posting it there would appears as if I was trying to debate or counter you, rather than merely providing a media resource.

The video was interesting but doesn't prove anything.  The phenomena illustrated could happen if the world were flat, or round.  It wouldn't make any difference.  Light exhibits electro-magnetic wave properties of a very high frequency.  I have seen other electro-magnetic waves in other frequency ranges do pretty much the same kind of thing.  Time lapse photos of the same view of across the lake to Chicago over a period of many months would tell you a lot more.  It would answer the question of whether what you were seeing is normal or just a transient phenomena.   When I was a kid I used to tune our old TV across all the channels just to see what I could pick up.  We only had two local stations at the time, but every once in a while I could watch a Chicago TV station 180 miles away.  I was lucky to get a reasonable picture from Chicago once or twice every couple of months.  Now a computer program can predict when such things are likely and amateur radio operators take advantage of such things.  I have been a Ham, myself, for over 50 years but I don't usually engage in hobby communications much anymore.  My job kind of ruined the hobby. It seems to me that when you have a NASA video, or a video from any other source that shows a global earth that those videos are deemed fake and/or photo shopped.  Why trust any video when there are other more scientific ways to prove that the earth is a globe. 
For FE no explanation is possible, for RE no explanation is necessary.
