LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — The public gets a chance Saturday to visit the site of the first atomic bomb blast on Earth.
The Trinity Site on the White Sands Missile Range is conducting its twice yearly open house.
The historic site is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Open houses are typically conducted every year on the first Saturday in April and October.
Public access to the Trinity Site is normally restricted.
Visitors can walk a quarter-mile to ground zero from the designated public parking area.
Once they arrive at the Trinity Site, visitors will see a small obelisk that marks the exact spot where the first atomic bomb exploded at 5:29 a.m. on July 16,1945.
