You should be able to figure this out on your own, and I can't really explain it if you lack that much spacial awareness.
Stand near the bottom of a small hill or an arched bridge. You can't see past the peak because the land or bridge curves. The same thing happens when you are standing on the surface of a large a sphere such as the earth. In all directions, the earth curves away from you. This creates the horizon. Interesting side note: The higher up you are, the farther you can see. This is why lighthouses were developed to be taller and taller. The taller the lighthouse, the farther away a ship could be and still see the light.
Because that's all you can see of the horizon. Tall people see a further horizon, shorter people see a closer one.
The "horizon" is the furthest you can see. "On the horizon" therfore refers to an object which is just in sight.
In the northern hemisphere it is above the horizon or we wouldn't see it.
Actually, the Moon appears larger when it is at the horizon. This is every time you happen to see it near the horizon, but it is only an illusion.Actually, the Moon appears larger when it is at the horizon.

Your at the equator if you see Polaris at the horizon
at sunset you can see the sun sink below the horizon
The closer the sun to the horizon, the more of the Earth's circle we see
no, it is beyond the horizon
we have a horizon which means that we cannot see all of the earths surface
it's 23 degrees below the horizon; you won't see it.
On the north horizon.
Where the true horizon is obscured by trees, buildings, mountains or whatever, the resulting intersection of earth and sky is called the visible horizon.See link for pictorial representation
Depends on how sunny it is that day
no. the curvature of the earth is what forms the horizon. the horizon is the point where you can no longer see any further because the earth is curving away from your line of sight.
You know that when you get higher up off the ground, you can see farther away ... in other words, your horizon is farther away. At night, the Sun is below the horizon for people here on the ground. But it may not be below the horizon for a high-flying aircraft, and it's certainly not below the horizon for the moon, which is a quarter-million miles "up off the ground".
It could be in any phase. If it is below the horizon, you can't see it.
The altitude of the highest point of the rainbow that you see is (42 degrees) minus (the altitude of the sun above the horizon behind you). If the sun is sitting right on the horizon ... just risen or just about to set ... then the highest point of the rainbow is about 42 degrees above the horizon opposite the sun. If the sun is higher, then the rainbow is lower, by the same amount. If the sun is more than about 42 degrees above the horizon, then any rainbow you might otherwise see is entirely below the opposite horizon, and you don't see one.
