smoke horizon

The top of a smoke layer that is confined by a low-level temperature inversion in such a way as to give the appearance of the horizon when viewed from above against the sky.

In such instances the true horizon is usually obscured by the smoke layer.
See also dust horizon, fog horizon, haze horizon.
