An angel returned to Ogden — and he's staying put.
Crews on Tuesday hoisted the 14-foot, 800-pound angel into place atop downtown Ogden's Mormon temple, which is undergoing a face-lift.
The fiberglass Angel Moroni — covered in gold leaf and blowing a trumpet — was removed when the temple renovation began in April 2011, according to a news release from the Salt Lake City-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The statue then was reconditioned and returned to its former home.
On Monday, crews erected the spire. On Tuesday, they added the iconic angel to the 190-foot edifice.
