Altitude Issues

Asked by David Henry on 2020-10-04

I have a question about ALTITUDE setting (location), I noticed that the ocean location said "8m"? Shouldn't that be 0m (sea level)? I also noticed Seoul, South Korea was 52m Altitude?

Thanks,
David Henry

The reason for this information, is my research on the Moon's distance.
How do your determine this value (au)? A simple 90 triangle measurement,
tells us it's not possible. Here's my research video using your software.
