FBI?



Yeah, I dunno about anything silly...

https://www.weaselzippers.us/396904-fbi-shut-down-national-observatory-in-new-mexico-due-to-security-issue-nearby-post-office-houses-evacuated/

...like aliens...

...but something more commonplace like "workplace violence" (Islam) or other such threat could be in play...or something like that...or the EPA spilled some nasty shizzle when retrofitting some idiotic green-friendly experimental crap on the site...but not telling the local authorities, WTF?  They MIB flashy-thingy the locals?



Hopefully it isn't the Vogon Destructor Fleet making way for a new hyperspace expressway...

This place is right next to White Sands.  Most probable explanation I ave run across  is that foreign agents co-opted electronic gear (an antenna array)  at the facility and were using it to spy on activity at white sands . It most likely is a national security issue, and they are most likely having to search to find which  computers or equipment are infected with a virus, or maybe are even looking for an installed device somewhere in the cabling that relays information elsewhere.

Or its aliens.

Yeah, if the former...I bet dollars to doughnuts there is a demonrat campaign contribution angle involved...

If the latter, gotta bag 'em & tag 'em to convince me.   ;D

'It Wasn’t Aliens’: Solar Observatory That Was Mysteriously Evacuated Will Reopen Tomorrow
The Sunspot Observatory in New Mexico was closed for ten days due to a ‘security threat,’ though aliens and solar flares have been ruled out

On September 6, the Sunspot Solar Observatory in the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico was evacuated, as were nearby homes and a post office due to an unspecified security threat. Now, reports Matt Zapotosky at The Washington Post the facility has announced it will reopen tomorrow, but the reason for its sudden closure is still not clear although authorities have finally released some details.

In a statement released yesterday, the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, which manages the site, said the closure was related to an investigation of criminal activity that occurred at the location, and that the evacuation was due to earthly threats, not asteroids or solar flares. “During this time, we became concerned that a suspect in the investigation potentially posed a threat to the safety of local staff and residents,” the statement says. “For this reason, AURA temporarily vacated the facility and ceased science activities at this location.”
