if the earth was flat, wouldn't those be the far away stars that are supposedly invisible due to haze?

I think the massive 150 foot wall blocks them out.

obviously that is the case, as shown by the lack of a dissenting opinion

True, true. I need an answer also about the international space station. Is it under the ocean and they call it that because it takes up space


its just a "lighter than air vehicle" I would guess......

Those would be the far away stars, yes.  They would be invisible on a flat Earth at some point.  I've only seen stars on a mountain horizon (lived in Colorado all my life); never on an ocean horizon, which is much lower.  

Remember when responding to this that photo evidence is not reliable.

I'm merely saying that I haven not personally seen whether or not stars are visible on an ocean horizon.  You claim that these stars are visible because you have seen them in...

They would, except there is no haze that high in the atmosphere. The thing is, there is a ton of haze in the bottom-most layer of the atmosphere (that cause ships to disappear), and there is not much haze over that. Most of the atmosphere actually has no haze, so most of the air the star light passes through is clean.
