When JC Martin submitted last week’s Photo Challenge — a strange-looking light on a pole — I figured it would be one of the toughest ever.

The range lights (I learned) are mandated for safe navigation in and out of the basin. They’re lit 365 nights a year, (Click here to see the photo.)
Ellen Greenberg, Pat Saviano, Jonathan Prager, Dave Eason, Andrew Colabella, Tom Wall and Janice Strizever all identified the light — and knew what it’s there for.
