It seems like all typical explanations have been excluded regarding a mystery cloud that originated in early evening of March 17 and floated over Amarillo, Texas.
A mysterious plume that showed up on National Weather Service radars is still puzzling people.
The weather service offices in El Paso and Albuquerque didn’t know what caused it, so KOB Eyewitness News 4 called White Sands Missile Range. Officials there didn’t know what it was.
This website (warning: a bit mystery mongering) noted that the plume exploded from just west of Carrizozo Volcanic field, White Sands / Area 29 military test range. The military has not confirmed it was any testing. The weather services says it wasn not a swarm of animals. What was it? Was it volcanic? This is a dormant area. There is currently no reported activity, volcanic or seismic. However, curiously, there was a report of a small plume from this area back in 2012. You can see the video analysis here.
It’s not as large and there was no follow up with weather radar, but this does lend some support that SOMETHING may be going on in this area that deserves a look. Is it dust? Is it steam? Those sites that monitor ominous “earth changes” get a bit freaked out about such events and suggest that there is some hidden agenda or censorship going on with the data. There are tons of anomalies every day, we’re all still here and OK.
The Carrizozo area is from 1500 to 5000 years old, a cinder cone and basaltic lava field that forms an obvious black snaky curve in contrast to the white sands of this desert area.
