I lived in Melrose which is a little town in-between Clovis and Fort Sumner (Billy the Kid's supposed grave). One time on a trip to Santa Rosa I saw them filling one of the balloons. The airport that they launch from is just north of town on the right hand side of the road as you head north to Santa Rosa. Impressive sight, especially at dusk when the sky is dark and the balloon is bright in the sky. Nothing mysterious, but another impressive sight was seeing A-10's practicing at night with their 30mm cannons. Looked like a death-ray! Jeff Colbert
