Turning Torso is a skyscraper in Malmö, Sweden, having a distinctive segmented shape & easy to recognize from far. From Copenhagen, Denmark, we can see its lower part is obscured more if we are farther because Earth is a sphere.
The building is close to the strait of Øresund. Copenhagen, Denmark, lies at the other side of the channel, only 15 km (9 miles) away from Malmö. Turning Torso has a distinctive segmented shape that is easy to recognize from far. And more importantly, for our purposes, its segmented form makes it easy to judge its height from far.
The farther the observer, Earth’s curvature obscures more of the bottom part of the building. The curvature obstructs more than half of the building at the farthest point of this observation by Matthias KP (47.9 km).
This observation can only happen if the Earth is spherical and the flat Earth model cannot explain it.
