Every evening light

10 March 2020

The lens system for the Texel lighthouse makes a circular motion so that every 10 seconds the light beams pass by twice. The illumination is 53.2 meters above sea level. The brightness is 2,850,000 candela. That allows the light to be visible as far away as 29 sea miles.
