It's that time of year again. Everyone is bringing out their Christmas decorations.

What better way to say "Joy To The World" they joining F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne Wyoming for their annual decorating of the nation's thermal nuclear devices?

Imagine a thermal nuclear missile decorated in garland and lights with a stocking cap as a topper, roaring into the atmosphere toward some hopeful dictator's chimney.

It's the gift that keeps on giving, for millions of years, until the radiation finally reaches its half-life.

Cheyenne's F.E. Warren Air Force Base has decorated its many underground missiles with the most festive and delightful holiday cheer one can imagine.

CAUTION: Don't listen to the song below. IT REALLY SUCKS.

"Funny how the festive lights glow all on their own," said Lieutenant Marcy Struckmyer, spokeswoman for the bases holiday festivities. "We didn't even have to plug them in. So, in a sense, you could say we are going green this Christmas. Kind of a weird glowing, pulsating, blue-ish green."

"Should we have to launch one of these at any weird, short little fat dictators with funny haircuts, no names mentioned, I hope they imagine Santa has dropped a big Christmas tree from is a sleigh, right in the middle of their capital city."

This is not the only change made in time for Christmas.

Apparently, and this is off the record, the launch code has been changed to something festive sounding.

No telling what that means but apparently as the code is repeated out loud the fellows turning the keys will be calling out some sort of Christmas cheer.

The folks at F.E. Warren Air Force Base would also like any nation they might have to fire at to remember, they don't expect anything back.

"Christmas is for giving, not getting," said Lieutenant Struckmyer, with a smirk and a twinkle in her eye.

Devils Tower As Seen From The Mother Ship

If you've see the movie (documentary) Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, then you know what it looked like to see "The Mother Ship" descending down to Devils Tower.

But what did it look like from the Mother Ship's point of view?

We don't have any actual photos from the Mother Ship

So we recreated the scene using Google Earth and one Nasa Photo.
