Could it be that the Post Office was evacuated / taken over as command central?

I decided to search who the sunspot.solar URL belongs to and apparently lots of other people did the same thing, and it looks like all information has been redacted.

Only info is that it may be registered to someone in CA.

"Right now, what we're told is that they've temporarily evacuated the area. We haven't been told why or when that expires," said Rod Spurgeon, a spokesman with the USPS.


Google the name Rod Spurgeon.

A coincidence surely.


That's one crazy coincidence! That seems like an awfully rare name to have. Very interesting thread!

I run up google maps on that spot, and I see it too. I figure it's one of those Google photo goofups- as that's the campground, and light hit the camera from that thing just right.

I'm at work and able to mess around and called the visitor centers number (575)434-7190. The recording states that both the visitor center and telescope are open 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm. No mention of a closure.

The recording also is able to direct you to a real person by pressing zero, but got no answer.

I did get ambitious and leave my phone number claiming to be an online journalist and requesting a call back about the closure and what the "security risk" is.

After pondering this for a few minutes after hanging up, I realized that may not have been the wisest move but it's too late now. I will update if someone actually does call me back.

I'm going to call the University as well....screw it.

I just noticed on Google Maps that for some reason there is no street view in Sunspot. Heck, there is no street view on the road leading into it.

But the funny thing is that pretty much EVERYWHERE else in the area has street view.

Just not Sunspot or the road into it.
Curious.




The blue color indicates street viewable roads, but for some reason only part of the picture shows

Well, I am about 400 miles to the west, but looking at the map I see it is just east of Holloman AFB and about 80 miles to the south-west of Roswell.
If I didn't have to work tomorrow, I might have just had to have a road trip...

So I work as a manager for a very large Hotel chain and decided to reach out to sister hotels in the area to see if I could get any relevant information.

I chatted with 3 different managers in Alamagordo and none of them knew anything about what's going on in Sunspot. One did tell me to try a place called "The Lodge", which is located in a place called Cloudcroft. I called there and spoke to the manager who seemed delighted to speak to someone from the Big Apple.

He told me that his hotel/golf course was about a 30 minute drive from the observatory. He went online to the article and decided that he was now interested, so he started asking other workers there if they had heard about anything going on at Sunspot.

Someone told him that he has a brother that works there that he hasn't been able to get ahold of for the last day or so.
Other than that , there was no real information given.

So I guess the only thing to deduce is that IF something nefarious is happening in Sunspot, even the locals don't know about it.
