High quality input this time from Antoine, Canigó from St. Beaume at 302 km. A classic view that never gets old and even more with this image with superb detail and contrasts.
Antoine quotes: “A wonderful dusk that revealed a clear view of the Canigou and his surrounding, thanks to “udeuschle” I was able to know the max distance of this picture which is 302km. I was theoretically able to see mountains near 320km but they were hidden by clouds.”


Archives from Meteociel for October 30th at 0000UTC is as follows:

We have choosen the time mark of October 30th 0000UTC as this picture was taken on the afternoon and this is the closest point to the original image date.

A big ridge and a system of high pressure is set over South Europe leading to clear air a higher than usual temperatures, a typical sign of increasing visibility dua to our experience.

Antoine has also done this magnificient simulation of the view:

And we also have received this panoramic view of the conditions around Canigó the day of this sighting:

    1. Hola Toni. No se porqué no se quiere entender lo de la refracción… Y me sorprende que se utilizen las fotos de distancia para argumentar a favor de la planitud de la Tierra cuando precisamente las fotos ayudan para darse cuenta de lo contrario..
