The Yaquina Head Lighthouse immersed in fog. The lighthouse stands 93 feet tall, putting it's light 162 feet above the waters of the Pacific. It was built in 1873 and originally used a 1st-order Fresnel Lens with a 4-wick lard oil lamp. The lamp was replaced by electricity in 1933, and completely automated in 1966. The house is still lit every night to guide ships into Newport.
