It is not particularly high but it may be the highest that it can get - depending on the observer's latitude.

Q: Is the sun particularly high in the sky at noon if it lies 63 degrees above the observer's horizon?

If the sun is 40 degrees above the horizon, a 5-ft person casts a shadow 5ft 11.5in long (rounded)

Altitude is the angle measured above the horizon.

-7 degrees below zero is 7 degrees above zero.-7 degrees below zero is 7 degrees above zero.-7 degrees below zero is 7 degrees above zero.-7 degrees below zero is 7 degrees above zero.

Without considering any effects of air resistance and wind, the angle of projection that delivers the greatest horizontal range is 45 degrees above the horizon. Anything different ... either more or less than 45 degrees ... reduces the range.

The distance to the horizon, d kilometres, is related to the height above mean sea level, h metres, by the approximate formula: d = 3.57*sqrt(h).

angle it makes with respect to horizon is equal to observers latitude. i.e. Philadelphia latitude 40 degrees so Polaris 40 degrees above horizon

The star is considered rising. Also, it is setting when it is the opposite (moving from above the horizon to below.)

If the horizon is on a level line of sight, a vertical line directly above the observer forms an angle of 90 degrees. 55 degrees would be quite high, being above 45 degrees.

At 45 degrees north latitude, the north celestial pole appears 45 degrees above the northern horizon. At 45 degrees south latitude, the south celestial pole appears 45 degrees above the southern horizon.

No, 56 degrees above the horizon isn't "low". "Low in the sky" is less than 20 degrees elevation or so.

The altitude of aircraft is measured above the ground, not above the horizon, and it's a distance. The altitude of the sun is not measured above the ground, and it's not a distance. If it were, it would always be some number near 93 million miles. The altitude of the sun is the angle that an observer sees between his horizon and the sun, and it's different for different observers in different places.

Polaris will be 23.5 degrees above the northern horizon when viewed from the Tropic of Cancer.

No, the sun stays above the horizon for the whole of Christmas day, at an angle of 23.5 degrees above the horizon.
