    Default Re: Cardinals and big yellow buoy half way across North Sea

    Were they a sort of lattice construction with a bit of a platform (not round), and a dim orange light in one top corner. Not particularly high, but then again fairly substantial? Several of them not really in a line, but more orientated N-S rather than E-W. A Lattice antenna at the southern end. East and west cardinals possibly marking it - no idea if there was a N or S as it was such a big area?

    We came across this this other evening too - crossed the line after sun down, but not yet dark fortunately - as you say dim yellow lights hard to make out. All rather strange. I have a photo of one which I will post once home.

    Yep, that's the ones, and a big mast in the middle with a red light on top with a couple of flashing lights on it. I passed just to the south of the mast. All very confusing
