What is that bright flashing light?? Its so bright and distracting! When the light is behind you it feels like an emergency vehicle is behind you. Is there a reason for this?

It's been at the airport for years. It doesn't flash it turns. It's to help planes find the airport.

It is a US Cellular tower. It has been constructed for nearly a year now but they recently switched the lights from red to a strobe. The strobe serves as a marker to warn aircraft and helicopters that there is a tower there. Those lights are required on towers that have a height over so many feet.

The strobes on most cell towers are supposed to switch between day/night mode. If they are super bright at night they may be set incorrectly. You can report this to US Cellular and have them check it out.
