    Is this supposed to be funny, or a scientific factoid created as a curiosity?

    Hmm, so 14 miles claimed here, yet when I looked it up on google (yahoo answers), the claim there was a little over 3 1/2 miles. I’d be curious to find out which is correct.

    The curious thing I find is that either way, if the candle is at ground level on a perfectly flat plain, after a little over 2 miles, you can’t see it anyway due to the curvature of the earth’s surface. :)

    For what it’s worth, several other sites claim up to 30 miles. The Yahoo answers one (the smallest distance) also happens to be the only one offering a scientific explanation and some math behind it.
