More details on the New Mexico Light Shows

Hi, I was just listening to the Sunday 06/15/03 Jeff Rense Show (the Encore)-- which played a previous show in which there was a caller that roughly explained a siting in our area in April of 1996. The area (if he is describing it correctly) is smack dab in the middle of military property between Alamogordo and Carizozo. I travel in the relative area quite a bit, and there have been many strange, unexplanable sitings including silent, laser-like light shows in the middle of nowhere, light orbs, and extreme brightness in the middle of the night lasting anywhere from 1 or 2 minutes to an hour or two. People who live in the area complain of unexplainable noise and light disturbances as well as earthquake-like ground vibrations.

One siting I can remember quite clearly was about a year and a half ago, I was driving my (now ex) brother-in-law back from Ruidoso to Albuquerque (I lived in ABQ at the time), and we witnessed a WILD laser like show over the horizon in the exact area the caller described. We watched this unexplainable light show for approx. 45 minutes, eventually passing its location and watching it in the mirrors of the car until arriving in Carizozo, in which we could no longer see the area (it was too far behind us). The lights appeared to be only white and very sporatic, but coming from the ground and very bright, lighting up the whole sky around us and extending very far up into and through the clouds. We estimated the distance of the source to be approximately 15-20 acres from the side of the highway.

We (the people of Lincoln County) believe there is a military base under ground, but I am not sure, as there is strict security along the gates, and no one can explore what is really out there without military clearance. There are signs along the fences that read "no trespassing, military personnel only". The local accepted theory is that the military is participating in technological experiments with air craft and laser weapon technology. Some local military personnel I have spoken to have suggested that this theory is real, but they will not say much more than "you're close" or "you've got the right idea". I hope this helps!
