Sky Watch for this week, please check out other posts of sky from around the world.
Cape Jackson Lighthouse beacon. It is situated in the open ocean off Cape Jackson, set on a small platform of rock, quite some distance from the Cape, where there is a second small light house. The sea is usually rough at this point being a convergance of ocean currents but this day it was a calm sea and a light breeze we found when we stopped off to fish over the reef between the lighthouse and the Cape. About 25 years ago a huge Russian Cruise ship hit these rocks and sank in the bay just around from here, with the loss of one person amazingly all the elderly passenger were lifted off to safety before it sank. Lots of little boats went to the aid of the people and did a wonderful job saving all but the one man who was an engine worker.
