Further north on our road trip of New England and now into the state of Maine and still hunting lighthouses! The Cape Neddick Lighthouse stands on Nubble Island about 100yd (90m) off Cape Neddick Point, it is commonly known as Nubble Light. This is the nearest I could get to it and if you have very good eyesight you will notice that its light shines red, unlike the Eastern Point Light which looks very similar but shines white.
Nubble Light is a famous American icon and a classic example of a lighthouse. The Voyager spacecraft, which carries photographs of Earth’s most prominent man made structures and natural features should it fall into the hands of intelligent extraterrestrials, includes a photo of Nubble Light along with images of the Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal.
Many thanks as always for your time.
