Alamogordo is a town in south-central New Mexico, located in the Chihuahuan Desert and bordered by the Sacramento Mountains.

The first settlement here was a Spanish chapel called La Luz, founded in 1719. However, the area was not actually inhabited until 1860. The town was officially founded in 1898.

Today, Alamogordo is known for its surrounding natural scenery, desert and mountains, nearby Air Force Base, and historic involvement with testing of the atomic bomb.
