Weather experts baffled by mystery plume on New Mexico radar near 1945 nuclear bomb test site --Speculation cloud could be result of weapons test 19 Mar 2014 A mystery 'storm cloud' caught on weather radar after erupting off a U.S. military missile testing ground in New Mexico has left weather experts baffled. 'Conspiracy' theorists have speculated that the plume-like cloud, which seems to appear out of nowhere, could have been kicked up by the explosion from an unreported weapons test.
