Project Twinkle and the Green Fireballs

The so-called Green Fireball phenomenon of the late 194os and early 1950s was one of the most intriguing - yet largely forgotten - facets of the early years of Ufology. On countless occasions these brightly-lit "things" would soar across the skies of New Mexico, apparently taking more than a passing interest in the nation's atomic energy installations.

The Air Force even set up a study program to investigate the puzzle that was named Project Twinkle. Many of the official records on Twinkle are now in the public domain. And for those who want to learn more about this odd facet of official interest in the UFO controversy, check out this great resource tool, and this new posting from mega-blogger Lesley.
