  Horizon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In many contexts, in particular perspective drawing, the curvature of the earth is typically disregarded and the horizon is considered the theoretical line to which points on any horizontal plane converge (when projected onto the picture plane) as their distance from the viewer increases.
In astronomy the horizon is the horizontal plane through (the eyes of) the observer.
As a final note, the actual visual horizon is slightly further away than the calculated visual horizon, due to the slight refraction of light rays due to the atmospheric density gradient.
