In the last post, we have shown a view of the Chicago Skyline from 59 miles away. While globeaholics have decided that this is only possible due to a phenomenon known as a “superior mirage”, we don’t believe this for a moment. As seen above, a superior mirage is inverted, appearing upside down, as well as quite distorted. It becomes perfectly clear, then, that the only way we are able to see over such vast distances, is beacuse there is no curvature to the earth.
