This cross is over the small town of Nelsonville Ohio. The sky was dark but the sunlight was lighting up the cross.

The body of the cross is 4 feet by 4 feet, the cross arm is 25 feet in length and the body is 65 feet tall., anchored to a base of concrete which rises 8 feet above the hilltop. Manufactured of metal of special composition which includes steel and aluminum, it bears a porcelain white color.
