During the latter part of the 1940s, a curious phenomenon was repeatedly seen in the skies over New Mexico. USA: strange, green, glowing balls of light which seemed to take a great deal of interest in the various military and defense establishments which existed in the area at the time. On May 25, 1950, Lieutenant Colonel Doyle Rees, of the USAF Office of Special Investigations, wrote a confidential memo to Brigadier General Joseph F. Carroll, the Director of Special Investigations. In part, it stated:

“In a liaison meeting with other military and government intelligence and investigative agencies in December 1948, it was determined that the frequency of unexplained aerial phenomena in the New Mexico area was such that an organized plan of reporting these observations should be undertaken. The organization and physical location of units of this District were most suitable for collecting these data, therefore, since December 1948, this District has assumed the responsibility for collecting and reporting basic information with respect to aerial phenomena in this general area.”

The “aerial phenomena” to which Lt. Col. Rees referred to fell into three clearly definable categories: (a) “green fireball phenomena;” (b) “disc or variation;” and (c) “probably meteoric.” It is category “a” that I am focusing on here. Rees continued to Carroll: “There is attached an analysis of the green fireball occurrences in this area made by Dr. Lincoln La Paz. Dr. La Paz is the Director of the Institute of Meteoritics and Head of the Department of Mathematics at the University of New Mexico…”

Project Twinkle files reveal that Dr. La Paz suspected the Green Fireballs were, “…U.S. guided missiles undergoing tests in the neighborhoods of the sensitive installations they are designed to defend.” He added, however, that, “…if I am wrong in interpreting the guided missiles as of U.S. origin, then certainly, intensive, systematic investigation of these objects should not be delayed until the termination of the present academic year. Recent international developments compel one to sense the imperative necessity of immediate investigation of the unconventional green fireballs, in case you are in possession of information proving that they are not U.S. missiles.”

For a year or so, the green fireballs were seen time and again around sensitive installations in the southwest – after which the sightings dropped, and finally came to an end. Project Twinkle remained active for a while, however, even though matters had certainly calmed down. The Final Report on Project Twinkle reveals the following from 1952: “The Scientific Advisory Board Secretariat has suggested that this project not be declassified for a variety of reasons, chief among which is that no scientific explanation for any of the ‘fireballs’ and other phenomena was revealed by the report and that some reputable scientists still believe that the observed phenomena are man-made.”

The mystery lingered on.
