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 6 second period, the light is on for less than 3 then off for more than 3.

Peshtigo Reef Light was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 2, 2007, reference number 07000404.
