Contest #65 Answer

This was a pretty easy one. The answer is the worlds largest compass rose in Edwards Air Force Base, California. In addition to being a test flight center, Edwards is also an alternate landing site for the Space Shuttle. If you notice, north on the ground compass doesn’t align with north on Google Earth. That is due to the magnetic declination of the location.
