Baker Island Light is one of the light stations that were built under orders from President John Quincy Adams.

A 'flashing' light is a light in which the total duration of light in a period is shorter than the total duration of darkness and the appearances of light (flashes) are usually of equal duration. So in the 10 second period, the light is on for less than 5 then off for more than 5.
