View over Alamogordo
I took this picture this morning from the Space Hall looking over Alamogordo towards the southwest. It looks peaceful. We have about 40,000 people here including Holloman AFB. We are a military town. Along with Holloman we have White Sands Missle Range, HELSTF and a bit of army lurking from Ft. Bliss. We are isolated somewhat, with the nearest airport being in El Paso about 90 miles away. We were home to the Stealth fighters before they retired and now they are in the process of bring in the Predators and the Raptors.
