That 'smear' may be the path of reflected and concentrated light ... which is very hot ... causing the smear which is simply super heated air.
Some solar telescopes can fry birds if they fly through the path.

Sure are, thanks.
I agree with you that Sunspot is without a doubt a solar observatory. There could be something else going on underground though. We know the solar observatory has at least one underground element.
The Sunspot Solar Observatory is located in Sunspot, New Mexico and is part ..... four categories: space-based, airborne, ground-based, and underground-based.

Could be a fire/arson and that's why the feds were called in. Crime in the national forest.
Wouldn't there be fire crews? No mention of that.
No big current wild fires close by closet one is in western New Mexico also kind of strange nothing on the story in national news.
Just trying to eliminate possibilities. A CME or solar flare would take 12-40 hours to hit earth, so if thats the news we are right at the far end of it hitting so much so you could probably rule that extremely unlikely event out. LOL where is the President lol if he is out and about it not world ending lol
