This is some truly weird news! Read about it here.
UPHAM, N.M. (AP) – The second wave of construction at Spaceport America is about to get going.
The Las Cruces Sun News ( http://bit.ly/GTEUaa ) reports the final built out includes the permanent Vertical Launch Complex facilities, the visitor center on the main spaceport campus, and the southern road to the spaceport.
Already completed is the 10,000-foot runway, the terminal hangar facility and the internal roads and the dome-looking Space Operations center which is nearly completed.
Spaceport officials hope to have the second phase of construction done by 2013.
At least the best place to spend the afternoon would be with NM UFO/Paranormal Forum. This Saturday our guest will be Dennis Balthaser. You can find out more information at the group blog.
Later on St. Patty’s Day I will be meeting up with some friends at a Irish Pub (of course!) and someone I can only describe as a Ufology celebrity. I am not saying who right now, but I will post photos next week. :-D
And speaking of Ufology celebrities, here is a photo of myself and North Cal LOWFI bureau chief – Adam Gorightly!
As I was telling JC earlier, we saw a lizard very much like this drawing. It wasn’t as big as the one described by the witness which was said to be 20 lbs. The one we saw was probably under 5 lbs and only a bit over a foot long. This was many years ago and I had no interest in Cryptozoology at the time. I just assumed it was some species of NM lizard that I hadn’t come across before. However, in recent years I have found that there seems to be no known species in NM that looks like what we saw.
We saw it out on Santa Ana Pueblo which is nowhere near where this other sighting took place. There was a huge rainstorm and we had pulled off the highway and decided to watch the storm which was quite fantastic. We had parked on a side road with no houses or buildings around (there was absolutely no traffic) and when the storm was over we noticed a natural arroyo that had water rushing through it not far from the road. We got out of the car to check it out and there was this lizard and he seemed very pissed off that we were disturbing his water fun! He ran towards us on his hind legs and was puffing himself up, his headdress seemed to be flaring. If I am recalling right, he was also making a noise that sounded like spitting. He had very pretty light reflecting skin, almost like holographic rainbow paper, but not that bright and shiny. Perhaps he was someone’s exotic pet that they had dumped there or there is a population of undiscovered species of lizard in NM? This was before digital cameras and cell phones, so I had no camera with me. :-(
