White Sands Missile Range Opens Secret Trinity Site and Thousands Flock to See It
The site where the first atomic bomb was tested in 1945 was opened to the public this past Saturday and over 5,000 people flocked to see it, but you can see it one more time.
The Trinity site is celebrating 70 years this past weekend and White Sands Missile Range opened it to the public. This was the site where the U.S. Army detonated the very first atomic bomb and it was, until this past weekend, a top secret place.
The Trinity site is located just off highway 380, this is what the government once called, "White Sands Proving Ground". The more that 5,000 visitors lined up and all patiently waited for their turn to see the sacred grounds where the first atomic bomb was tested.
If you missed out on the visit this weekend, don't fret, there will be a second viewing for the public. The second viewing will take place the first Saturday of October on October 3, 2015. For more information check out the website.
