Some cool Jupiter Ascending images:
Image by "SnapDecisions" photography Inside the fresnel lens at the top of the Jupiter Lighthouse in Florida The stairway ascends into the Watch room through a small hatch in the floor. The Watch room is the heart of the lighthouse, as the keepers worked here cleaning the lens and surrounding glass, trimming the lamp wicks, polishing the brass, and winding the turning mechanism weights. The Lighthouse has a first order flashing Fresnel lens, designed by Augustin Fresnel in 1822. The lens resembles a beehive as it is composed of many sections of glass set into a frame work that looks like a single piece. The glass sections are shaped into prisms that refract or bend light toward a powerful magnifying glass in the center of the frame. This glass is called a 'bulls eye' and intensifies the light. The flashing light of the lighthouse use a clockwork mechanism to rotate the lens at specific intervals. The intervals from a pattern of flasks and each pattern is unique to a particular lighthouse. Mariners can then locate their position at sea by identifying a flash pattern. The light is visible from 18 to 25 miles at sea. The light is created with two 1000W lamps, one being a back-up if the other burns out.
