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?

Quit posting under different names. As far as I am concerned, it is akin to deception. If there is something you don't understand about a previous response, all you have to do is ask. In the previous response to this, I asked a question: does that question give you the answer?
