It's neither of those. It's not military related, although they probably laid the groundwork for it when they were in place.

Makes even LESS sense now!

...told FBI agents in August he found a laptop computer with child pornography several months earlier but did not immediately report the discovery to authorities because he was “distracted” by an unspecified urgent issue at the observatory.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


later in the same article

The observatory closed, without consulting FBI agents, after Cope’s comments about the serial killer and his erratic behavior, the warrant said.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


So, guy finds computer with "child pornography" (in other stories I've seen, the wording was something similar to "what he found on the desktop was 'not good' and possibly child porn.") and waits for several MONTHS before reporting it? What was this "urgent issue" that was so "distracting" that he could not pick up the phone and either call the Sheriff or FBI... For months!?!

Now the story is that the janitor was making crazy statements because his laptop went missing so they shut the place down without consulting the FBI. So, who came in on a Blackhawk and climbed all over the antennas and also called the Sheriff to ask for assistance in evacuating everyone?

Maybe it actually has something to do with the sun and the recent activity surrounding it?

We're laughing about it in an off site discussion. Someone said all that's missing is Yeti, the Loch Ness Monster, and Brexit.

You can take Yeti off the list 😂
According to Red Rock Security guard Angel Escalante

We're also protecting them from Bigfoot"

Maybe Bigfoot are protecting the Yeti.

Very possible!! Sorry, I tend to use the terms interchangeably but forget that they are actually different "animals" The American Bigfoot or Sasquatch are similar to the Yeti but tend to be larger from what I remember about them. I think the Yeti might be more similar to the Skunk Ape, from the Southern parts of the US. But this is all probably covered in another thread. Lol

They could add in the janitor inappropriately touching the observation director. That seems to be a popular one lately.

Has the director tweeted about it and joined the #MeToo movement?
My apologies. Had to say it. I really do support #MeToo

To a degree it might, but only places like here. The full truth, almost certainly not.


Thanks for that, I know you can't reveal what has been told to you, and I'm not going to ask you to.

So if I ask questions like that one, I'll try to make them something you can answer.

So that means you have a little bit to ponder. There are bread crumbs here but not the "whole banana". Don't feel bad if you "don't get it" because there are some topics over on the Aircraft forum that above my head to


Haha, I'm fully aware I'm not going to solve this one on my own, hence why I asked him if he thinks it will ever come out.

That fact doesn't both me a bit, we all have our knowledgeable areas, this one isn't mine. If my grandpa was still around, I might have been able to pry it out of him, he worked on the star wars project and after that did reverse engineering at a few air force bases.... He also traveled a lot internationally and couldn't tell us why, very cool dude.

I'm going to put my hat in the ring with a theory. Go easy on me boys, I'm not as well versed in this area.

In the past few years, I have noticed an increase of infrastructure being infiltrated, leading me to believe bad actors are trying to find vulnerabilities.

We had the Utica Ny emergency alert system hacked the day before a NJ train crash with an ominous message.

We had the Dallas tornado sirens hacked one night.

We had an alleged hack on the power grid from Russia.

Those are just a few. But the cyber security around this observatory might not be to the same grade as the rest of these examples.

Could they alter input data giving false alarms from what it is observing from the sun? Could altering the data to give false positives on solar flares make our government/military put things offline to prevent damage from said flares?

This could leave us vulnerable. While I wouldn't call that mundane, they reacted, and if they hotfixed it, it may just serve as an embarrassment.

Edit: Forgive me if anyone else had this theory, I have not been able to keep up with the very large thread.
edit on 21-9-2018 by CriticalStinker because: (no reason given)


Edit 2: This could explain the no manhunt, taking the observatory offline, but still keeping it functional (severing outside connection, but keeping it in operation to test input vs data output days prior.)

I shall reply with...I think we have another theory that makes more sense than any of the official stories! Also, I don't think this theory has been touched upon yet. And if it has been, I don't think there has been any links to attempt to corroborate the theory. Therefore, I shall give you credit for this theory, add it to the ongoing list, be the first to welcome you to the club and bestow upon you


As for whether it is possible, I can say that I can see the plausibility with it! My opinions don't really count for much, though. Lol!

Why thank ya!

From the sounds of Zaph, I don't think the real reason is the end of the world, just a sloppy embarrasment, so I'm just having fun playing with the ideas.

I know. And that also ties in my belief that the whole "child porn" is just a cover. While it's possible it may have been "thought" child porn was involved at the beginning, it may not have truly been (maybe just young looking 18-20 year olds) but once you throw the words "kiddie porn" out there, everyone becomes outaged for a day but they cease any questioning. It really works at shutting people up.

Exactly. It's not the kind of thing you want the world to know about, but it's really not a huge deal. It's funny as hell to watch them double down on the story to cover their ass.

Very true, that angle has a lot of holes in it as Zaph has pointed out. No manhunt, charges, arrests.

I will say my theory does have a rather large hole in it. There are multiple solar observatories.

That said, sometimes we may only have 12 hours warning on a devistating flare. So could positioning of one observatory over another give enough credence to try and faraday what we can to mitigate the threat?

I'm just spit-balling.

Edit: An attempt to tie in the post office closure. What if an insider was there at the observatory to relay information back to someone? They might use the mail instead of digital communication to avoid detection? Maybe they got out of dodge when people started catching on to anomalies from date prior to what readings were showing?

I'm stretching far haha.

Right, you never want to be associated with the words "child porn" or "molestation" BUT people have a very short memory and they also tend to not hold a facility or business at fault for them having one "creepy" employee.

DOJ Law Enforcement News Conference - New Mexico

So I take it whatever happened isn't related to whatever news conference is coming up soon?

Only asking because someone from the Office of Air Force Special Investigations will be at this "law enforcement press conference"...
