At one time Matinicus Rock the "strongest" on the Maine Coast with an intensity of 700,000 candlepower. Next was Cape Elizabeth at 500,000 candlepower. These numbers were BS (before solarization). The current light descriptions in the Coast Guard Light Lists no longer include light intensity so I do not know the current intensities for any of the lights.
