Most Mainers Don’t Know That The Quintessential Nubble Lighthouse Was Sent To Space…Sort Of

Maine is well-known for the craggy coast and beautiful water landscapes. And one thing that goes along with that are the many lighthouses dotting the coast. They each come with incredible history, but some of the best have some truly unique mysteries. This York lighthouse offers a pretty cool fun fact that we think most people don’t know about. And if you’re a space-lover you’ll be even more interested!
