Edward’s Compass | Compass Equivalence Theorem | 6 days to go 

Heading home for the holidays? Be sure you’re heading in the right direction! Etched into a dry lake bed, this massive compass rose is accurate without magnets and was created as an analog direction device at the emergency landing strip. With a diameter of 1.2km it is the world’s largest compass and is ideal for use by aircraft that may have malfunctioning or non-functioning equipment.
