Schaefer and Liller and their co-workers have recently carried out a useful study in the important field of atmospheric refraction near the horizon. I A body of 144 measurements from various sites was collected and some pertinent analysis carried out. However, the authors conclude, inter alia, that "methods for aligning the Great Pyramid of Cheops to an accuracy of 2' cannot involve nearhorizon observations", and they assert that "the historically important claim by A. Thorn that British… Expand
