New Mexico is officially the Land of Enchantment.
However, it seems that there are some who take this state motto almost literally and even believe that it is indeed the Land of Enchantment in more ways than one.
Some even seem to regard New Mexico as a state that has always been (and continues to be) filled with unexplained mysteries, especially when it comes to UFOs and paranormal phenomena.
Of course New Mexico has Roswell, world famous for its alleged 1947 “crash” incident.
What really took place in July of 1947 outside of Roswell no one knows for sure.
Perhaps there may be prosaic explanations to that incident.
But, again, no one knows for sure.
We have also heard about alleged crashes near Corona, also nearMagdalena and in the Plains of San Agustin, all in New Mexico.
The bottom line to me is that whether it really took place or not( i.e., the alleged crash of an “extraterrestrial” spacecraft, as had been so claimed and described by witnesses at that time) is really not what matters the most.
Besides, it seems that we do not have a single publiclyacknowledged solid, tangible, physical, irrefutable documentary evidence that we have ever been (or are being) visited by physical extraterrstrial aliens in physical extraterrestrial spacecraft.
But this does not mean at all that the UFO phenomenon does not exist.
In fact, the UFO phenomenon seems to remain a great mystery, even from time immemorial.
It’s just that we cannot come to any hasty conclusions equating this phenomenon with physical extraterrestrial visitations.
That’s the bottom line.

This book sounds very cool! From Amazon:
When thinking of New Mexico, few Americans think spy-vs.-spy intrigue, but in fact, to many international intelligence operatives, the state s name is nearly synonymous with espionage, and Santa Fe is a sacred site. The KGB’s single greatest intelligence and counterintelligence coups, and the planning of the organization’s most infamous assassination, all took place within one mile of Bishop Lamy’s statue in front of Saint Francis Cathedral in central Santa Fe.
In this fascinating guide, former CIA agent E. B. Held uses declassified documents from both the CIA and KGB, as well as secondary sources, to trace some of the most notorious spying events in United States history. His work guides modern visitors through the history of such events as the plot to assassinate Leon Trotsky, Ted Hall s delivery of technical details of the atom bomb to the KGB, and the controversial allegations regarding Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist Dr. Wen Ho Lee’s contacts with China.
Held provides background material as well as modern site locations to allow Cold War enthusiasts the opportunity to explore in a whole new way the settings for these historical events.
E. B. Held is a retired CIA clandestine operations officer. From 2002 to 2009, he was Chief of Counterintelligence at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque. He currently serves as Director of Intelligence and Counterintelligence at the Department of Energy in Washington, D.C.

Those of you that are friends with Norio Hayakawa on facebook may already know that NM LOWFI has been receiving visits from Homeland Security, specifically to Norio’s post about a secret base more commonly known as Dulce.
Visits from Homeland Security to this site is nothing new, it is just that they seem to be zoning in on certain posts, which is interesting. It is the same at UFO Magazine Blog where I also posted one of Norio’s posts. Strangely they use Bing rather than Google. Not sure what that says about MS, but maybe Google isn’t as trusted. :-)
Some people take this to mean that Colonel X is absolutely telling the truth about the base. Myself, I think there is likely one of two things going on. Number 1 – the possibility that Colonel X is the real thing and telling a real story. Or, #2, Colonel X is spreading disinformation for the government and they are keeping an eye to see how quickly it spreads. Still, the explanation could be something entirely different.
Just a warning to people new to Ufology to not believe the first most obvious thing, which would be that the story is true. I am not saying it isn’t true, I don’t know, but keep your mind open to other possibilities as well because in my experience such things are never what they seem at first glance.

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA — (Sept. 25, 2010)
Popular Internet radio broadcaster Jerry Pippinhttp://www.jerrypippin.com/ based in Muskogee, Oklahoma, stunned his worldwide audience on Saturday, September 25, 2010 when he featured researcher Anthony Sanchez who, for the first time ever, revealed to the public the official government/military name for the much-rumored, alleged underground installation in Dulce, New Mexico.
Sanchez disclosed the complete name of the installation as: “Rio Arriba Scientific & Technological Underground Auxiliary“.
He stated that this information came to him directly from a retired Air Force Colonel in January of 2010 when the Colonel invited him for an private interview in his cabin in California.
The interview lasted about three hours and was recorded on tape.
The official, abbreviated form of the Dulce installation is RIO ARRIBA CO, DSD-3 or RIO-AUX, Sanchez told the audience.
This military designation is not found anywhere on the Internet.Sanchez said that he was told that this designation is “classified” when he made an inquiry with the Military Records in St. Louis.
Another information that stunned Pippin’s audience was the revelation that there are three separate installations in Dulce.
The main underground installation is named TA-D1 and is located,surprisingly (and confirming the long-existing rumor), underArchuleta Mesa!!
The second underground installation (a two-level installation) is named TA-D2 and is located on a non-descript area between the Eastern slope of Archuleta Mesa and County Road 357, close to the Colorado stateline. The exact location of this Security installation will not be disclosed.
The third installation is called TA-D3 and is located in the Leandro Canyon (close to the Project Gasbuggy site of 1967), about 22 miles southwest of Dulce.
This installation is the farthest from the main complex, but is connected to the main facility by an underground tunnel system, stated Sanchez.
“In fact, all three facilities are interconnected by subterranean tunnels. The most astounding information that was disclosed to me was that the main facility under the Mesa is also connected to Los Alamos National Laboratories in Los Alamos, New Mexico”.
(A distance of about 65 miles).
In this stunning broadcast, Anthony Sanchez confirmed the Colonel’s statement that there is no record whatsoever of a Thomas Edwin Castello that was ever employed as security personnel in Dulce.
One interesting thing that the Colonel mentioned to Sanchez was that the Colonel and his wife were present incognito at the 2009 Dulce Base Conference which was held in Dulce, New Mexico. The conferece was held on Sunday, March 29, 2009 and drew about 130 people.
The Colonel confirmed to Sanchez that he and his wife were near a parking lot close to the Best Western Jicarilla Inn at 5:50 a.m. on the morning of the conference, sitting and drinking coffee when two military helicopters flew over the building.
One stayed around longer, hovering over the building.
The other circled the area, then scanned some vehicles, including theirs, before leaving.The Colonel confirmed that the helicopters were from DSD-3.
The Colonel also confirmed to Sanchez that there were two AFOSIinvestigators sitting there in the audience who he personally recognized.
In addition to them, there were several recogniable LANL scientists, he told Sanchez.
The Colonel stated that were it not for the late Paul Bennewitz and Myrna Hansen, the Dulce story would never have surfaced.
One documentary evidence item (DD-214 Record) to back up the claims of the Colonel was shown to some researchers by Anthony Sanchez http://www.ufohighway.com
at a press conference held on September 11, 2010 in Angel Fire, New Mexico.

Saw my first UFO last night (this last morning), probably an Iridium satellite, at about 5 AM MDT, looking East from Santa Fe Forest, Forest Road 289 (just after Band.) at a cluster of stars that look like a comet to the naked eye, so I was checking with binoculars and BINGO on the “second” check (for some reason I looked again and while marveling off and on comet/cluster) a UFO crossed. Mostly no trail but some times had a one, so I’m think UFO. E-mailed to George Noory and Linda for tonight’s show on Coast To Coast. I was out making a quick camp fire since it was cold (built the prior evening, all I did was start it).

Robert Hastings, author of UFOs and Nukes, to appear on Coast To Coast AM,
July 26 2009
Noted UFO researcher, lecturer and author Robert Hastings will make his second appearance on Coast to Coast AM on July 26, 2009. Hastings will discuss important declassified U.S. government documents which confirm a decades-long UFO-Nukes Connection that began with some 150 reports of UFO activity at the Los Alamos atomic weapons laboratory as early as December 1948. According to one FBI document, dated January 31, 1949, these incidents were “considered top secret by Intelligence Officers of both the army and the air forces.”
On July 16, 1945, Los Alamos secretly tested the first atomic bomb in the desert near Alamogordo; bombs two and three were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan on August 6th and 9th respectively, thus ending World War II and ushering in the Nuclear Age. Not long thereafter, according to the declassified documents, someone piloting “flying discs” or “flying saucers” began to monitor America’s atomic and thermonuclear weapons program on an ongoing basis.
Information uncovered by Hastings and other researchers reveals that intermittent UFO surveillance of Los Alamos, and other nuclear weapons-related sites, continued throughout and the Cold War era and beyond, occurring as recently as 2006. One Air Force document declassified in 1977 reveals that several UFOs maneuvered near Minuteman nuclear missile sites outside of Malmstrom AFB, Montana, in November 1975. Some of those objects, which alternately hovered and flew around at high velocity, were also tracked on radar and chased, unsuccessfully, by jet fighters. One UFO was reported by missile security personnel to have an “orange white disc” appearance.
These dramatic incidents occurred some six years after the Air Force closed down Project Blue Book—its supposedly definitive UFO investigation—claiming that it had terminated the project because there was no evidence that UFOs posed a threat to national security. However, another now-declassified USAF document states that “Reports of unidentified flying objects which affect national security…are not a part of the Blue Book system.” Of course, the American public was never officially informed of this fact, which only became known after the document’s release years later. Researchers now have evidence that national security-related UFO incidents, including the missile base cases, were actually investigated by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) and various counter-intelligence groups.
Hastings will also present stunning testimony from a few of the 100-plusformer or retired U.S. Air Force personnel he has interviewed, who were involved in one or more of UFO incidents at nuclear missile sites over the years. According to those sources—which include missile launch officers, targeting officers, and maintenance personnel—missiles malfunctioned on a number of occasions, at different bases during the 1960s and ‘70s, just asUFOs were sighted hovering above their underground silos, or above their launch controlfacilities.
In other words, if nuclear war with the Soviet Union had erupted during any of those incidents, the affected missiles—which displayed what the Air Force refers to as a “Guidance and Control NO-GO” error—would have sat useless in their silos.
Even more shocking than those cases is the incidentreported by former Minuteman missile launch officer DavidH. Schuur, who was stationed at Minot AFB, North Dakota, in the mid-1960s. According to Schuur, late one night, a UFO actually activatedmost ofthe ten missiles he controlled. At the time, he was in the underground Echo Flight Launch Control Capsule, receiving frantic calls from missile security guards topside, who were reporting an extremely bright object in the sky which rapidly moved from missile to missile, briefly hovering over each one. As the UFO lingered, that particular missile’s “Launch in Progress” button suddenly lit up on the control panel in the capsule. Schuur states that he had to quickly press an “Inhibit” circuit button to override thelaunch command apparently being sent to each missile by the UFO.
Schuur told Hastings that he does not know whether the missiles would have actually launched, had he not disrupted their countdown sequence, because several other “spurious indicators” had simultaneously appeared on his missile-readiness display panel. Significantly, a nearly identical incidentoccurredin Soviet Ukraine, on October 4, 1982, according to two retired Soviet Army officers interviewed by ABC News in 1994. The reporter, David Ensor, later worked at CNN as the network’s Chief National Security Correspondent.
Hastings has researched the UFO-Nukes Connection since 1973 and has been invited to speak about his findings at over 500 U.S. colleges and universities since 1981. He has just returned from two international lectures, in Stockholm Sweden and Curitiba, Brazil.

Below is a blog post I wrote for my Land of Enchantment blog over a year ago. I don’t normally like to cross post at different blogs, but it happens to be one of the most popular posts at any of my blogs and I plan on following it up soon at this blog with more about Green Fireballs and Project Twinkle.
I never quite realized that green fireballs were seen in NM all the way back in 1949. About 10 years ago I saw what at first I thought was a green fireball, but on closer inspection happened to be a powerful green laser shooting into the sky from Sandia/Kirtland AFB. It was supposedly used for some astronomy purpose was the rumor I heard after inquiring with a few people I thought might know the purpose. After that I assumed that probably all green fireball stories were really just lasers and people unfamiliar with lasers were mistaking them for something mysterious. However, there are several articles at the site where I got the one below that are also early reports. The laser wasn’t invented until 1960 and I believe it was only the ruby laser which was red, it was several years after before there was a green laser so maybe that can’t account for all green fireballs sightings.
There is also another explanation, all the cited sighting of green fireballs prior to 1960 took place near a national lab, or research lab. The one below in Los Alamos, one in Albuquerque where Sandia National Lab is located and a some in Alamogordo, which is next to Holloman AFB and White Sands Missile Range. Is it possible that lasers were really invented long before the public was made aware of them? Really they were invented years before Theodore Maiman patented his ruby laser, but for some reason this was top secret and so Maiman was just allowed to patent it and take credit for inventing the laser?
Just a thought.
Another thing I found interesting was the reference in the article to the thought control office. According to the site I got the article from, the writer is actually being sarcastic and referring to the Atomic Energy Commission. :-)
Los Alamos, New Mexico, Skyliner – 29 Feb, 1949
Flying Green Lights Alert Constabulary
By THE OBSERVER
Shades of the flying saucers!
Los Alamos now has flying green lights.
These will ‘o wisps seen generally about 2 a. m., have alerted the local constabulary and their presence is being talked about in Santa Fe bars.
But local wheels deny any official knowledge of the sky phenomena. Each one passes the buck to another.
A call to El Paso, Tex., brought official denial from D. K. Brown, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation district that embraces Los Alamos, that his agency had not been called to deal with the matter.
At the information or thought-control office officials indicated that they knew about the recurring green flame in the sky but indicated that it wouldn’t be wise to write about it.
Capt. Carroll Tyler, project manager, said simply that all he knew about the lights was rumor — the same rumors that everyone is hearing.
Call the Army
At the thought-control office the general reaction was that the matter was out of AEC jurisdiction and the best way to find out what was going on was to call Kirtland Field.
A call to Kirtland showed that an Army captain who asked that his name not be used because he didn’t know anything, didn’t know anything. He was eager to learn, though.
Official reaction was the same on the Hill except for the atmosphere of secrecy that has been thrown about a matter discussed in every saloon and drawing room from here to Santa Fe.
There was even no speculation. Could these be visitors from Mars or from the Russias [sic]? No answer.
But enough competent observers had told this observer that there was indeed something in the wine.
Shott [sic] Down Venus
And something much more tangible than the time last summer when one of the local security officers ordered out tanks and jet planes from Kirtland Field to shoot down a light low on the horizon that happened to be Venus, a well-known planet.
The jet pilots, trigger fingers ready, were disgusted at that alarm. Maybe that’s why they’re now querying the green lights.
Have you seen a green light lately?
