View of Earth's horizon as seen from Space Shuttle Endeavour, 2002.

The horizon (from Greek orizein, to limit) is the line that separates earth from sky. But at many places the true horizon cannot be seen as there are trees, buildings, mountains and so forth. The line is then called visible horizon.
