📌 Did you know?

👉 Guiding Lights for Centuries: Lighthouses have been guiding ships safely for centuries. The oldest existing lighthouse is the Tower of Hercules in Spain, believed to have been built by the Romans in the 2nd century AD. It continues to operate as a working lighthouse today.

👉 Unique Light Patterns: Lighthouses are identified by their distinctive light patterns. Each lighthouse has a unique pattern of flashes, colors, and intervals that allow mariners to distinguish it from other lighthouses. This aids in navigation and helps sailors identify their location.

👉 Lighthouse Keepers’ Life: In the past, lighthouses were manned by lighthouse keepers and their families who lived on-site. Their duties included maintaining the light, ensuring the machinery worked correctly, and often rescuing shipwreck survivors. Automation has largely replaced the need for resident keepers.

👉 Tallest Lighthouse: The Jeddah Light in Saudi Arabia holds the title of the world’s tallest lighthouse. Standing at an impressive height of 436 feet (133 meters), it serves as a crucial navigation aid for ships entering the Red Sea and the Suez Canal.

👉 Fresnel Lenses: Many lighthouses use Fresnel lenses, a type of lens developed in the 19th century by Augustin-Jean Fresnel. These lenses are known for their efficiency in focusing and directing light over long distances, significantly enhancing the visibility of lighthouse beams.
