Outer Cape Cod, MA - Aaron J. Derry

Highland Light Balances the Moon

Highland Light in Truro, Massachusetts, appears to balance the moon during a clear February afternoon.

In 1797, a station authorized by George Washington was established at this point on the Cape, with a wood lighthouse to warn ships about the dangerous coastline between Cape Ann and Nantucket. It was the first light on Cape Cod.
