If that diatribe is true, then there would have been no reason to cover it up. The press would just have a field day with it and that would have been that. The lockdown and the foolish reasons was unprecendented.

I think the observatories proximity to White Sands is likely related to the events.

Maybe something needed to be tested at White Sands that they didnt want people to see.

That’s because the suspect was determined to not have actually done anything wrong, or at least nothing that rose to criminal level and with child porn, that’s understandably not a high hurdle to get over.


Don't suspected pedophiles usually get outed guilty or not by click hungry websites.

Recalling the liquid mercury that was supposedly a fluid bearing in the telescope mechanism. The conjecture was it leaked, or was stolen.

Did any newer info come forward that included the mercury as part of this case?

Many had said it was not related to the mainline reason for the shut down, however I have trouble with coincidence, like many others here.


Why would anybody steal liquid Mercury? It's not cheap but it's an off the shelf item and there isn't a black market in it that I'm aware of.

Think about it guys. Where are observatories located, and what else would benefit from it.

At high elevations like atop mountains. Other benefits would be comms antennas/microwave line-of-sight, repeaters, and super telephoto lens camera gear. From Sunspot observatory it's line of sight down to Holloman AFB and White Sands.

It's not specific to there.

Mountaintops. So someone was using their own equipment for something and had it plugged into Sunspot's network? I'm thinking someone put up their own cellular antenna or something they weren't supposed to do.

It is suggested that it would be near impossible to obtain that QUANTITY of mercury at one time, today. That is a hell of a lot of mercury. The conjecture would be... what else could be done with that much mercury, if it is even a factor in this story at all.

It's not specific just to this location.

Are you saying that there could be more than one incident but are related?
Or, since mountain tops are not relevant, then a geologic reason, as in what is the stratographic profile under-which the observatory sits, since it does go down quite deep into the rock.

I do not want to intrude into what you said about a trust you have with someone or some thing...

But this thing is a huge mystery that is just dead-ended for lack of options.

I'm saying that what sparked this is not just located at this particular location.
