    Here is something you don't here about at a sunspot-solar-observatory

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) swooped into a New Mexico town unannounced and shut down an observatory last week, and to this day no one knows why. So of course, conspiracy theorists have concluded that it has something to do with aliens.

    As The Albuquerque Journal reports, last Thursday was just a normal day at the National Solar Observatory in Sunspot – that is, until the FBI showed up, by some accounts in a Blackhawk helicopter, and ordered everyone out. Scientists, technicians, clerical workers, and even the janitor were told to pack up and leave.

    Otero County Sheriff Benny House said that workers were terrified and called local law enforcement to keep things from getting out of hand.

    Oddly enough, as Albuquerque Journal reporter Matthew Reisen was on the phone with the sheriff, the phone went wonky and cut out while the sheriff was in mid-sentence.

    It wasn’t just the observatory that was evacuated on a moment’s notice: a postal clerk working at the nearby post office said agents walked in and told him to take a hike. Reisen contacted U.S. Postal Service spokesman Rod Spurgeon, who called the situation “strange.”

    some kind of a cover up. We had the same thing happen in our town when this guy that lived alone for the past 10 years was gunned down and just as quickly he was gunned down the Vermont state police,FBI,Border police,county came in sealed off the road,property for about a week. The FBI came to the town clerks,PO,select broad offices and were told that " NOBODY IS TO SAY A THING, THIS DIDN'T HAPPEN,KEEP YOUR MOUTHS SHUT,ETC." Then they all left. His home is still condemned,roped off,warning signs,fenced off and has been this way for the last 2 years.Nobody knows a thing.This happened up in the little Vermont town of Pecham,Vt.

    Closing a post office - that's a sign something serious is up.

    Apparently someone said something. All those people involved and not one of them will reveal any information ....never?

    Similar to calling 9-11 an inside job and the number of people it would have taken to pull that off and after all these years not one person has revealed the "conspiracy".

    Even the news outlets from both sides of the political isle (FOX and MSNBC) has reported on this... It does seem strange, some are saying terrorism but who would want to blow up a solar observatory?! There was also at the time of the closing, a military Helicopter flying around.

    I have no clue what this could be, but I can't wait for the explanation..

    Given the proximity of the missile test range next door, anything is possible.

    And after they spent all that money to install really fancy cameras and other remote sensing equipment pointed into space, it's hard to believe that the observatory only works on "science" projects -- especially given its proximity to its very military neighbors.

    I work in a hotel and asked one of my co workers that live in Pecham,VT and asked him yesterday if anything new about the stuff that happened last year.He said nothing!, everyone seems to be very quite about,it's not a good subject to talk about it town.
