An apparent horizon is defined as a maximum circumference obtained by passing a plane tangent to the observation point until the celestial sphere is found.

While the visible horizon is defined by the separation between heaven and earth, the apparent horizon is an imaginary line. The apparent horizon line divides the celestial sphere into a visible and an invisible hemisphere.
