. How we are able to observe the sunrise about two minutes before the sun gets above the horizon

Best Answer

Ans. The sun can seen about two minutes before sunrise because when the sun is slightly below the horizon, the sun’s light coming from less dense air to more dense air is refracted downwards as it passes through the atmosphere. Thus due to this atmosphere refraction, the sun appears to be raised above the horizon actually it is slightly below the horizon.
