(From the Info link:) "This beautiful 62 acre Catholic Shrine and botanical garden is located in Portland, Oregon. The Grotto (as it is commonly called) is a non-profit Oregon corporation, supported solely by the proceeds of its gift shop and by donations. It is administered by the Friars of the Order of Servants of Mary. "

(From me:) When they light this cross up at night you can see it for miles. The neighborhood directly beneath The Grotto appears as though it's stuck at permanent high noon, it's so bright! ;)

The cross is lit from within by what appear to be hundreds of halogen lights. Surely it must be clearly visible from the moon?
