Terningen Lighthouse (Norwegian: Terningen fyr) is a lighthouse in the municipality of Hitra in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The lighthouse is located in the Trondheimsleia near the mouth of the Hemnfjorden, just west of the island of Hemnskjela, and about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) southwest of the village of Sandstad.
The 12-metre (39 ft) tall lighthouse has an occulting light that flashes white, red, and green. The light can be seen for up to 13.4 nautical miles (24.8 km; 15.4 mi). The light is activated from July 21 until May 16 each year. The light is inactive and unnecessary during the late spring and early summer due to the midnight sun.
