ferrybridge c power station
I live in bradford and from my window i can see Ferrybridge C power station cooling towers. The height of the towers are 375ft, the approx distance from my house to the station is 30mile ( i do not know the exact distance as the crow flies but using a route planner ). i can see the full height of the towers ( with binoculars ). According to google the drop of the earth due to curvature at 20 mile is 277 ft and at 30 miles it is 600ft. So even if i took the distance of 20mile which i know it to be greater than that distance, then i should only see the top of the towers at best.
