Phily and NY from afar. 1st one is from Eagle Rock Reservation. BTW, which is a great place to go during winter. On a clear day, it's stunning.

I started to say beautiful sunset, but that would be sunrise, right? Whichever, that's a gorgeous pic.

Anyways, the 40+ mile shots are what I'd be really interested in. The shore of St Catharines and Niagara on the Lake are about 31 miles from Toronto, and it looks like you should definitely be able to see Toronto from quite a bit further if you can get to a high enough elevation because you see Toronto quite well from those locations. You see it even better from a greater distance atop the Niagara escarpment in St Catharines and Hamilton which is about 37 miles.

Niagara Falls would be 42 miles, I haven't been up the towers there but I'd imagine you should be able to see Toronto from there reasonably well still considering you can see Niagara Falls from Oakville (39 miles) despite the Niagara Falls buildings being much shorter than Toronto's. You can even see Niagara Falls from pretty much lake level in Oakville, so if you can get to the top of the towers in NF which are on top of the escarpment (so maybe 800 ft above the lake) the Earth's curvature won't get in the way nearly as much as looking at NF from Oakville's waterfront.

Looking from some of the high-rises in Buffalo or K-W would be really cool, that would be over 50 miles. At that distance the sub-skylines of the Golden Horseshoe would stack so that they would appear like a continuous skyline from Scarborough to Mississauga (you already have that effect from St Catharines).

The Chicago Skyline, Seen From Michigan (!), Thanks To An Incredible Mirage

http://chicagoist.com/2017/04/20/pho...ne_as_seen.php

Quote:
.....

- The scientific name for the phenomenon is superior mirage. It's also known colloquially as fata morgana—all helpful information since the stunning effect pretty much left us grasping for words. --- How does it happen? It's all about the interaction of cold and warm temperatures and the density of the atmosphere. When we see weather conditions featuring extremely clear/dry air, and a temperature inversion caused by warm air higher above cold air closer to the surface of the lake, this situation creates the mirage of seeing a 'skyline...'

Interesting video.

The comments on the video are symptomatic of what one sees these days with so many YouTube videos. No wonder so many video posters turn off comments. There are just too many trolls out there.

They had to shoot that movie in Northern Ontario since Lake Ontario rarely freezes over in the winter -- the last time was in 1934. haha

From where is that Denver shot taken? Somewhere above Roxborough Park?
