I made it 1994 in Greece, Chalkidiki, peninsula Kassandra ! I failed to identify this small harbour light!

General Discussion / Lists of lighthouses from Thailand
« Last post by Bergwind on January 30, 2020, 02:08:00 AM »
Recently I have made a trip to Eastern lighthouses of Thailand. I have found some lights not listed in Admiralty or Lighthouse Directory. But there are two lists, I cant find.
For instance, yesterday I uploaded Rayong lighthouse. Beside Admiralty and ARLHS the Directory mentioned THN-114 and NGA 20600. ??? ;)

General Discussion / Re: What is the northernmost lighthouse in the world?
« Last post by zanskar on January 16, 2020, 09:01:08 PM »
Thanks for info!
It seems I found (and even visited) it - a one degree more north from Belukha island. It's probably the most northern in the World.
I have to doublecheck and then publish photos and information)
