Better yet look down a street with street lights and notice the angle of the last light you see and then have a friend stand half way to the end light and ask him is his angle is the same as yours . They will vary but they will still be the same height but look lower because of the distance which moves closer to the horison because of the vanishing point we see .
Now: do what I said.......find someone over a thousand miles away, and have them look at the sun at the same time as you and ask them how far up the horizon it is, then compare it to what you see. Distance will not change the angle, only a curve will.
Here is a science guy that makes some very good points and finds that he is torn about what to believe .
I don't consider him a idiot
