I'm now beginning to think that whatever is happening has very little to do with the physical location. Let's take a step back and look at it
FBI raids the place, kick everyone out with no explanation. Has sheriff assist in evac and then stonewalls them until they leave. Claims "Security
threat" and nothing more. Agents messing with antennas and towers. They toss up Caution tape, a portable sign and then leave. No presence of agents,
security personnel or even maintenance crew.
Mercury theft and/or spill has been ruled out due to the enormity and stupidity of such a task. Plus no agents in spacesuits and SCBA even though it
wouldn't be necessary.
Bomb threat is out the window due to no bomb squad. Plus it would've only been shut down for a few hours and then open again.
Post Office played a role in it? Not likely. White powder would've required the workers to get tested but we know they were moved to a neighboring
post office and no quarantine or clean up crews seen scrubbing the place down. The location inside the little wall is what got it shut down, in my
Aliens!? Unfortunately, not this time. While many other observatories have been shut down for some time around the globe, many others have not been
and that info would've leaked by now, from somebody. I'll circle back to this in a minute.
Someone threatened someone? Come on, Sheriff, the FBI doesn't fly in a response crew for that. It would've been your job, Sheriff!
Spy infiltrated the place? Now we are getting closer to what may be the real answer. RadioRobert mentioned the software and how valuable it could be
in the hands of someone with a Directed Energy Weapon. The amount of data for moving, directing, aiming the mirrors would have to be enormous and
contain more lines of code than I'll ever write in my life. Why write your own when you could gain access to some of the most advanced software on the
world just by sending a student over to study astronomy and load a backdoor onto the system? Or even better, save the airfare and tuition and find
your own backdoor to the system. I'm guessing with it being an outdated observatory that was going to be moving, the network may not have been updated
recently. Also, who would have thought an observatory would be a prime target for hack? The FBI deals with cyber-security. If the system was being
remotely accessed, yank those wires down from the antennas ASAP! Evacuate everyone and get them out of your way so you can grab the servers, hard
drives, etc. and head back to wherever to find out where the attack happened, when it happened and what all they were able to get. No need to post any
guards there because you've got everything, nobody can go in and work because you've got their computers. So, just toss up some yellow tape, a stop
sign and leave town. Now, circling back to the other observatories that have been shut down or had other anomalies. What if they are connected to the
same network as Sunspot? And even if they weren't, they might have been put on alert to check their stuff. So, they shut down, run through everything,
if it's ok they are running again but if not, they remain shut down until they figure out the severity of their breach. In my opinion, this is what
makes the most sense, checks all of the checkmarks and is the most viable answer.
