50 Miles Away Should Be Behind 2.5 Miles of Curvature!
The curvature of the earth is suppose to be eight inches per mile squared. This means that at fifty miles what you're seeing should be behind two and a half miles of curvature. Think of how many times in your life you have looked in the distance for hundreds of miles and saw something. That is only possible on flat earth as light does not bend without reflection or refraction. If the earth were indeed a globe the horizon line would not be at eye level, especially as you went up in elevation. As the curvature of the earth took the ground away from you the ground would vanish in the not to far distance.
