The Coast Guard reports that Boston Light is now equipped with four Webcams, letting people see the view from the entrance to Boston Harbor.
The cameras enhance maritime safety by providing a picture of real-time sea conditions and visibility at the outer reaches of the harbor, allowing mariners to make informed decisions about their trip prior to leaving the dock.
Oh, and yeah, they're just cool to look at.
The Coast Guard installed the cameras, each of which points in a different cardinal direction, with help from the National Park Service and the Hull Lifesaving museum.
Boston Light is, of course, the nation's oldest lighthouse station, built in 1716, and now the nation's only lighthouse still staffed by actual lighthouse keepers, way out there on Little Brewster Island.
