About Muskegon South Pier Light

Website

The location of the light is Muskegon Channel from Muskegon Harbor. The nearest city is Muskegon, MI. The station was first established in 1851. The current lighthouse was first lit in 1903.

The lighthouse is a red conical tower.

The tower has a flashing red light at a focal plane height of 50 ft above mean high water. The light has a nominal range of 6 nautical miles. The tower height is 48 ft. The light has a period of 4 seconds.

Open to the Public?: Grounds Only    Active?: Yes

Identification number: 7-18710 (U.S.)

The Muskegon South Breakwater and South Pierhead lighthouses were transferred through the NLHPA process to the Michigan Lighthouse Conservancy (MLC) in the summer of 2010 from the GSA.

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.
