Blue Hill Bay Light is also known as Sand Island Light or Eggemoggin Light. The original 1857 structure still stands near the current skeleton tower light.

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 4 second period, the light is on for less than 2 then off for more than 2.
