1. I'm not your teacher.
2. Look at the clouds.
I know you're not.
However, you posited the notion:
"If the object was close,the front would have been illuminated by the sun much more than it's,and not just the edge."
So I asked why you would think that. Why would "how it is lit by the sun" matter if it was 100 meters away or 1000 meters away. Granted, if it was 1
foot in front of you, you could possibly be able to see more of the side of it, thus you may see more of the lit portion. However, being 100 meters
away opposed to 1000 meters would afford you virtually NO more of a view of the side of it.
Like in my example, would a building 100 meters in front of you have more of the front lit by the sun than on of those buildings across the river
(500+ meters away)?
So I asked you the clarify why you felt the way you felt (i.e., why you felt what you said was evidence showing that the object was far a way
(above/beyond the buildings?), and I would think it is not unreasonable to hope you would answer my question.
This is a discussion board, after all.
