EL PASO THROUGH THE EYE OF A CAMERA LENS: Originally an El Paso tradition only during the Christmas season, the star on the south side of the Franklin Mountains has been lighting the nights in one form or another since 1940. Made up of 459 light bulbs, it can be seen for 100 miles from the air and 30 from the ground!
