Put a pencil straight down into a glass of water. Notice whether the pencil looks bent. Now tilt the pencil and note how its apparent bending changes. How does this illustrate why light from objects near the horizon is refracted more strongly?

Is the atmosphere thicker looking toward the horizon than upwards?
