A paper from a February 1949 [Top Secret] conference at Los Alamos Scientific Center wherein Dr. Lincoln LaPaz discusses (with Dr. Edward Teller et al.) his observation of a Green Fireball:

  • I think that it is interesting and significant that Dr. Teller was in attendance and asking questions about what, normally, would be considered a rare, but odd, series of astronomical events.

  • "Project Twinkle," as the official investigation of the "green fireballs" was designated, had an all-star cast: not just LaPaz and Teller, but also Dr. Fred Whipple from Harvard and Dr. Clyde Tombaugh, discoverer of Pluto. Because the fireballs were appearing regularly over New Mexico and specifically over high security military bases and nuclear facilities, there was great cause for concern.

    You'll also see a curious item at the top of page one: Project Twinkle marked the first and possibly the last time that the Army was ever officially involved in a UFO investigation.
