ANGLE OF ELEVATION: The “upwards” angle from THE HORIZONTAL to a line of sight from the observer to some point of interest.

ANGLE OF ELEVATION: The angle formed by the line of sight and the HORIZONTAL PLANE for an object above THE HORIZONTAL

“Measurement of the ELEVATION ANGLE:

“The term ANGLE OF ELEVATION denotes the angle from **THE HORIZONTAL** upward to an object. An observer’s line of sight would be above the **HORIZONTAL‘**.”https://www.varsitytutors.com/hotmath/hotmath_help/topics/angles-of-elevation-and-depression
ELEVATION ANGLE is the angle between the **HORIZONTAL PLANE** and the line of sight, measured in the vertical plane.”https://www.radartutorial.eu/01.basics/Measurement%20of%20the%20elevation%20angle.en.html
Well what does a SEXTANT Measure ???? …. Elevation Angles !!!

“A SEXTANT is a tool for measuring the **’ALTITUDE ANGLE‘** [ ELEVATION ANGLE ] of a star above the *HORIZON*.”

“In the hands of the practiced observer, the modern SEXTANT can be used to measure **’ELEVATION ANGLES** with an accuracy of 10 seconds of arc—that is, close enough to determine a ship’s north-south position within a few hundred metres.”

“All the observer does now is to use a SEXTANT to measure the **’ANGLE OF ALTITUDE**[ ELEVATION ANGLE ] H of the noon sun with respect to *HORIZON*, and to record the exact time of this measurement.”

CONCLUSION: You MUST HAVE *HORIZONTAL PLANE‘ BASE LINES*
(‘The Adjacent’) to obtain
**’ELEVATION ANGLES** using a SEXTANT .

ERRRR… There are *NO* *HORIZONTAL PLANES* on a Spinning Monkey Ball !!

ERGO… The EARTH *IS NOT* a Spinning Monkey Ball.

FROM… Jacoby, Harold (Professor of Astronomy, Columbia University); Navigation: Chapter VI, **THE SEXTANT**; Cornell University Library, 1918, pg. 61 …

“This height of the sun (or of any star) in the sky is called its “altitude”; and so the altitude is always an angle, to be measured in degrees or minutes. The point directly overhead is the “zenith”; the angle between lines drawn to horizon and zenith is **90 Degrees**, or a **RIGHT ANGLE**.”

pssssst…

**ATTENTION TO ALL FLAT EARTHERS:**

The ‘Official’ END of the BallTARD Spinning Space Monkey Religion is HERE !!

# NOPE !

Welcome To Flat Earth.

The End.
It’s ALL OVER BallTAAAAAAAARDS !!!
( with an itty bitty **’RIGHT TRIANGLE’ !!!!** )

Ladies & Gentlemen, Welcome To…
