Greenwich Light Vessel Automatic is a lightvessel in the English Channel, off the coast of East Sussex. It is operated by Trinity House. It was one of the 22 coastal weather stations whose conditions were reported in the BBC Shipping Forecast but was dropped from broadcasts some time during 2019. The name of the vessel derives from the fact that is located close to the Greenwich (or Prime) Meridian.
The vessel currently on this station is the solar powered Trinity House Lightvessel No. 5, built in 1946 and in active service at various stations around the British coast since 1947.
