    Call me cynical, but the place is run by contractors, and we're nearing the end of the fiscal year.

    They're probably out of money until October 1st.

    Maybe when they get their funding they can turn the ionosphere back on.

    But is that a reason for the FBI to show up and clear the place out and not tell anyone why?

    Maybe the sun is getting ready to go super nova? :eek:

    "Solar power embezzlement" by the observatory staff. Uh huh. Something nefarious if it involves the FBI. I wonder if the neighbors noticed the days being dimmer recently? ;)

    Similar things have been suggested. At the QTH the sun was 90+% blocked during last year's eclipse and it was still surprisingly bright, so I'm thinking you could swipe 10% and hardly anyone would notice.
