Spotlight On New Mexico – Trinity Site

On July 16, 1945 at 5:29 a.m. Mountain Time, the world’s first atomic bomb was tested at the Trinity Site. The Trinity Site is located at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.  The site is open to the public only twice a year – the first Saturday in April and October. This year I was one of the hundreds of visitors from all around the world to flock to the site.

This week I am focusing only on the Trinity Site and next week I’ll feature the Schmidt/McDonald house where the bomb was assembled.  To see personal photos I took during my excursion and photos from the WSMR booklet please click here.

Enjoy!
