Interactive video lesson plan for: Horizon is always flat and on eye level, Earth curves up. Read description !

Activity overview:

One guy wrote the following: http://i.imgur.com/BpgJ11J.jpg?1

Concerns the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nojl3aiYBOw

And here's the 'slight curvature' he's talking about: http://i.imgur.com/6ibwbV5.jpg

According to him this results from the camera used, the arc is smaller because the field of view is narrower (he said it's 20 degrees)
Here's what the curvature should look like according to Google (60 degrees)

The field of view, as Hornblower tried to explain, has nothing to do here.

Above is a link to a 360 degree interactive video of Earth from about 25 km

It lets you control the view (move up or down, left and right) and enlarge or reduce the amount of horizon you see. You can go around to see that the horizon is...straight.
