Can I See the Curvature of the Earth when Skydiving?

Skydiving Gold Coast

Skydiving is an exhilarating experience for those who want the ultimate thrill. Along with the adrenaline rush, you also experience one of the most amazing views. Dropping from thousands of feet up allows you to see the earth from a new perspective. Many people believe that you can even see the curvature of the earth; however, this is not the case. The GoPro offers jumpers a wide field of view, which can sometimes cause a slight curve to the earth, making you think it is the earth's curvature.

In fact, the only way to see the earth's curvature is to take a rocket 35,000 feet into the atmosphere and jump out in a spacesuit. Despite not being able to see the earth's curvature, skydiving still offers you a fantastic view of the landscape below. However, sometimes you are on sensory overload and don't see much of anything until you open your parachute. Many people don't recall the sights from their freefall because you are opening your parachute once you begin to process the fall. While it may not be the earth's curvature, using a GoPro to video your skydiving experience gives you an interesting perspective. Once the parachute slows you down, you can take in the view below. Your slow descend to earth will leave you in awe as you prepare for landing.
