"The flying disc intelligence was focused on the one area in the U. S. where any 'peculiar phenomenon' that disrupted weapons research activity was immediately a matter of concern to the JCS and the President."

An observatory was constructed on Sacramento Peak east of WSPG by Dr. Donald Menzel (MJ-10) of the Harvard High Altitude Observatory (Climax, Colorado). "Sac Peak" was reported to "aid the observation of surface-to-air missiles launched from Holloman Field." Later, the observatory was used to conduct full coronographic studies of the sun and eventually became the primary instrument for the National Optical Astronomy Observatories and Solar Observatory funded entirely by the National Science Foundation with headquarters in 1996 at Tucson, Arizona.
