Mysterious plume detected in New Mexico

Has someone been testing nuclear weapons ? Image Credit: US Department of Energy
Weather experts have been baffled by a mysterious plume that erupted over a missile testing site.
The plume first appeared last Monday over the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico which is close to where the first atomic bomb was detonated back in 1945.

Online weather tracking services seemed to show that the anomalous weather event had emerged out of nowhere within the space of a few hours from a single point of origin as though it had been produced by an explosion. Further analysis indicated that it had originated from within the testing range itself.
Conspiracy theorists have latched on to the mystery by claiming that it is evidence that the US government has been conducting secret nuclear detonations in the region, however so far no further evidence for this has been found.

The US National Weather Service has confirmed through its offices in Albuquerque and El Paso that the anomalous plume had been picked up by their instruments however they have so far been unable to determine what might have caused it.

Has anyone thought about why the so called weather event is being called a plume? Volcano.... http://en.wikipedia....olcanic_plume The person that was watching the online display labeled it a plume without regard to knowing what it was. They might as well have labeled it chemtrail or vortex to get people's attention. For now it's just a word.

Its most probably one of those top secret never to be revealed plume weapons. Like this one, which caused many years worth of mystery... http://earthobservat...ew.php?id=82213 That is interesting and I had never heard of it.Thanks

I think its time someone did detonate another nuke above ground. Pacific. Fifteen megatons. Night detonation. Warhead packed out with modern up to date technology. Toss in some old ships and some expendable protestors and fishermen to test the affects of the blast and radiation, the party will be better than Guy Fawkes night.

I'm confused as to why it's news? Plume of smoke at a missle testing site, It doesn't really seem out of the ordinary :S Don't missles usually create smoke when they blow? Testing a bigger missle as a nuclear alternative? I'm confused :S.

Storm. Not the mutant super-hero, but the natural phenomenon. There is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOAB But even that doesn't produce a radar hit that big. So, once again: a storm.

Probably 'just' another missile test. The US are too concerned with complaining about NorthKorea's tests while pretending to be all innocent. They are unlikely to announce that they have made or will be making any new tests.

We can test all the missiles we want to. Geez, the woodwork is full of the crazies right now, and they're flooding all of the forums I am part of!!!

Conventional weapons can cause a plume...It does not have to be a nuclear detonation to cause the effect reported. The only thing is that this occurred over a three hour period. It would only take a few minutes for a non-nuclear explosion to create a plume. I think that this is some type of atmospheric anomaly. I do not think any kind of explosion is the cause.

We used to drop 2,000 Lb dumb bombs form my aircraft and that thing looked like a mini-nuke had gone off. Drop four in a string and it is pretty impressive.
