Issue description
In the geoscope, the radar lines of base radars can be seen even if they are "on the other side of earth", so should be overlapped (invisible) by earth. This can be reproduced with a freshly started campaign, by "rolling" earth to the side until the new home base, with radar active, disappears below the horizon.

The radar is no longer visible once the base is "too much" below the horizon. It seems to happen in that moment when the last part of some radar circle that is (correctly) still displayed disappears. Thus the radar circle disappears all at once instead of continuously.

If there are many bases/radar towers on earth, this becomes pretty confusing.

This bug is new in 2.6.
