Page 120 - horizon" be given to the plane passing through our eye which is produced to the (extremities of the) universe, and separates off the segment which we see above the earth. The horizon is a circle; for, if a sphere be cut by a plane, the section is a circle. Let the name "meridian circle...

The square of the radius of any small circle is equal to the square of the radius of the sphere diminished by the square of the distance from the centre of the sphere to the plane of the circle (B. IV., P. XI., C. 1): hence, circles which are equally distant from the centre, are equal ; and of two circles which are unequally distant...
