Sunset
« on: January 11, 2020, 12:14:46 AM »
I witnessed the Sun quite deliberately descend below the western ocean horizon. Since the Sun's apparent size does not diminish as it moves across the sky and passes out of sight, I find it extremely unlikely to explain this phenomenon by claiming the Sun both increases in apparent size as it moves away and conveniently dims into darkness at exactly the moment the alleged perspective effect of sunset brings it below the horizon.

Well, yes. We'd expect you to familiarise yourself with the basics of FET instead of making up an explanation of your own and then decrying that your explanation is bad. Please put some more effort into future upper fora threads.
