There is an ability of the identification of lights with one of most difficult and very important abilities in the marine navigation.

After general acquainting oneself with characteristics of lights, a lighthouse feeling at sea and for observing the light one should make sure whether seeing him is possible that it isn't the different ship, the aeroplane, the star not to say the light of the car on the road (at one time during reaching the Hammerhavn port, I noticed the blinking lighting strange on the land how they showed late were these are lights of the car which went in the forest). One should after such assuring watch each other this way light so that determine his characteristics and the period then measure characterizations of blackouts and solar flares in the period with the centre half in the hand, of not very period! One should after the measurement identify the light with the object, with the lighthouse on the map and confirm characteristics of the light in the list of navigation lights.
