What is the ceiling like beneath this vent? Is there or is there not attic space between the ceiling and the underside of the roof?

Basically as long as it is not leaking I would leave it be. If you have attic space beneath it, leave the vent there so it can do it's job.
If there is no attic space, someone placed it there without thinking about what they were doing and it really serves no purpose. However if you start messing with it or try to remove it you might open a can of worms...that section of the roof will be a lot harder to patch since it is not traditional shingles.

So, pretty much, I would just leave it alone.

It is actually the size that they use on Commercial structures. As for age, probably installed when the previous owners made that addition.

Wash Ugh is about all I can say. Been dealing with trolls all weekend, along with a bunch of others who all support Law Enforcement. They are trying to slander us, by stating that we are posting private information on individuals.

As for this vent. I am needing to get someone up in my attic and unhook the wiring on mine, so that I can just put a 4' Florescent fixture up there. That way I am not having to drag around a drop light every time I have to go up there to adjust the antenna a bit between Winter & Summer, and also able to check for any leaks after Winter.

Wash it is 80 here in Springfield, IL right now. My attic is at 83. It is nice to finally have attic vents in the right place, to not need that darn Mushroom any more. But it does make for a great large sized vent on the roof, to help cool the attic down quicker.
