Mystery continues on why the Sunspot solar observatory was shut down

Sunspot apologizes for the continued closure of the facilities,” a statement on the observatory’s Facebook page said on Sunday. “The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is addressing a security issue at the National Solar Observatory facility at Sacramento Peak, New Mexico and has decided to temporarily vacate the facility as a precautionary measure..




And that is just about all the public knows about why the FBI shut down the observatory within notice warning or after-event statements..

But online, theories rage into the night as to what caused the FBI to sweep into the town, close down the space observatory along with the town post office, and ever let anyone back in.. The entire observatory is reportedly empty at this time—employees obviously gone but some Twitter reports state that the actual equipment and other items have been taken away as well.

Major media is rightly paying close attention to the hurricane along the East Coast,  but lost in the Atlantic shuffle appears to be any widespread coverage of this X-FILES-ish actual event taking place in Sunspot New Mexico.

Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis has been the only national voice giving any coverage to the event—his program two nights in a row now used this weird event as its subject matter. On Wednesday’s program, Clyde Lewis got a call from someone who has purported to be an informant from within the darkest confines of government.. that person stated that there is a weather modification program actively being utilized by the government. The solar observatory, the informant told Lewis, was hacked by Chinese spies.. those spies were using the solar station to get information on a nearby missile site.
Interesting theory..

The overwhelming silence from any officials on this has given rise to the conspiracy theory taking place online.

REDDIT has become an active hub for people theorizing as to the occurrences that would force the FBI and any other yet unnamed alphabet agency to take this dramatic action...

A hacking?
A mercury spill?
A disease outbreak?
A massive solar flare on the way?
The upside down opened? Calling Eleven!

One person wrote on public talk board 4Chan: “Forums are talking about it being a ‘super-flare’ strong enough to turn the surface of the planet into an uninhabitable wasteland.

“Either we'll have a press conference this week, or rich people are going to start ‘disappearing’ quietly.”

Another person added: “A big enough solar flare from our sun could wipe us out. Probably just as likely as an asteroid.”

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise.
