Well sailors use the stars as a guide (North star etc) which wou can see at night and are gone in the day.

Not really sure what else sailors would use to guide them at night appart from a lighthouse or a compass or a map+torch ?? (but none of those fit the riddle)

theres bits to confuse you but two main parts are in turn the same thing.....

just because it says its there to guide does that really mean its there to guide?
