Exhibit opens on artificial reef

Florida Keys
An underwater art exhibit has opened on a former Air Force missile-tracking ship sunk as an artificial reef in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary seven miles south of Key West.
Austrian photographer Andreas Franke is exhibiting a dozen images on the Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, which was scuttled in May 2009. The 4-by-5-foot photographs, mounted in stainless-steel frames sealed with silicone, stretch along 200 feet of the starboard side of the 523-foot Vandenberg’s weather deck, 93 feet below the surface.



Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse

Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station, just south of Daytona Beach, Fla., was completed in 1887, when the area was known as Mosquito Inlet. At 175 feet, Florida’s tallest lighthouse was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1998. The beacon was decommissioned in 1970, and a local preservation group spent decades restoring it. It was relit in 1982.
