Exactly as expected with a large globe Earth. Especially as your horizon is a circle the same distance from you in all directions.

Circles are flat. Feel like correcting yourself?

Or are you saying it’s flat from the observer to the horizon?

You’re all over the place. Much like someone who has never stood on a sphere.

I'm saying your horizon is the same distance from you in all directions. As it is the same distance there should not be a visible curve.

I agree with you. However the physical characteristics of a sphere do not.

Nothing is flat on a sphere. Especially one that supposedly curves 8” per mile ^2

When your horizon is the same distance in all directions the horizon will appear flat as the drop is the same in all directions. Not my fault that you can't understand that.
