    Default View from Max Patch?

    I looked and couldn’t find this, but anyone know, on a clear day, how many miles in the distance you can see from the top of Max Patch? Amazing views this past Wednesday!
    Thanks!

    at least 90 million miles.....

    and besides the sun, there might be some other stars that are further away that might be visible.....

    I think your howitworksdaily "article" is overly pessimistic. 6 to 12 miles only? Nah . . more like a 100 miles from a viewpoint on a reasonably clear day. I've seen the White Mountains of New Hampshire from the Long Trail in Vermont. Its actually a math problem. https://pumas.nasa.gov/03_25_96_1.pdf [if link doesn't work google "nasa how far can you see"]
