Phoenix Rising - Hangar One at Moffett Field - Mountain View, CA

Hangar One was built in the 1930's as a dirigible hangar. It's one of the largest man-made structures in the world and visible from space. It was in danger of being torn down but will now be restored. That resurrection plus the shape of the structure in my photograph similar to the outspread wings of a bird led me to think of it as a phoenix rising.
