From our Department of WTF, what could have happened to cause security lockdowns at seven solar observatories – all within hours of each other on the same day? People who keep an eye on the news from space are wondering what the U.S. federal government doesn’t want the rest of us to see or know.
On Thursday, September 6, 2018, the FBI showed up unexpectedly at the National Solar Observatory (NSO) in Sunspot, New Mexico. (The town happens to be a two-and-a-half hour drive west of Roswell, where that UFO/weather balloon crashed in the summer of 1947.)
NSO employees were forced to evacuate with due to undisclosed “security reasons.” No other details were given to them or local law enforcement authorities.
The observatory was cordoned off completely with police tape. An anonymous NSO employee revealed:
“It was a security risk area, and we were told to leave and don’t come back until we were told to.”
The Otero County Sheriff (OSC) was quick to issue this statement:
“The FBI is refusing to tell us what’s going on. We’ve got people up there (the observatory) that requested us to standby while they evacuate it. Nobody would really elaborate on any of the circumstances as to why. The FBI was up there. What their purpose was nobody will say.”
Sheri Lofson, speaking for the Association for Universities for Research in Astronomy, added this explanation, which raises far more questions than it answers about why the NSO was summarily shut down:
“We have decided to temporarily vacate this facility as a precautionary measure. And we’re working with the proper authorities on this issue.”
The OCS also reported Blackhawk helicopters circling over the emptied facility. Federal crews were seen on towers and around antennas. The sheriff’s department was not invited to help out.
Oddly enough, the Feds also shuttered the U.S. Post Office in Sunspot – again, with no official reason given. USPS spokesman Rod Spurgeon said:
“Right now, what we’re told is that they’ve temporarily evacuated the area. We haven’t been told why… or when that expires.”
At the same time the NSO in Arizona was being evacuated, the FBI sidelined six other sun-facing and space-viewing cameras:
- AXIS 2320 Network Dome Camera in Sydney, Australia
- SOAR Observatory in Chile
- BRT Tenerife Telescope in Spain
- Mauna Kea Observatory in Hilo, Hawaii
- Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope in Hawaii
- JAT Observatory in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania
Skywatchers are wondering what on earth precipitated such a sudden, coordinated shutdown of seven solar imaging sources all at the same time?
Best guesses so far include a massive solar flare-up or a massive UFO transiting (crossing) the face of the sun.
Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are often linked to solar flares. Both are gigantic explosions of energy from the sun into the surrounding space. Some of that space leads directly to Earth.
The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) says “the average time it would take a CME to get to the Earth is 98 hrs.” CMEs fling solar matter into space like a cannon.
NASA explains why CMEs are potentially dangerous:
“High-frequency radio waves can be degraded: Radios transmit static, and GPS coordinates stray by a few yards. The magnetic oscillations can also create electrical currents in utility grids on Earth that can overload electrical systems when power companies are not prepared.”
This is the dreaded “Kill Shot” that Major Ed Dames (formerly with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or DARPA) and other remote viewers have been warning us about for some years now. Supposedly, we can expect “a series of solar flares that are so devastating to the Earth, it may cause the death of billions and change life on Earth as we know it.”
A solar flare is a sudden flash of light from the sun. These travel much faster, reaching our planet in a mere 8 minutes! Flares can disturb radio waves in the atmosphere to produce temporary blackouts in navigation and communication signals. But could they end modern society?
The Marshall Space Flight Center notes that “The frequency of CMEs varies with the sunspot cycle. At solar minimum, we observe about one CME a week. Near solar maximum, we observe an average of 2 to 3 CMEs per day.”
This has been a quiet year for sunspot activity. According to Space Weather Archive, as of May 1, 2018, “the sun has been blank almost 60% of the time, with whole weeks going by without sunspots.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says this reduction in sunspot activity is normal, part of a natural cycle of solar maximums (high activity) and minimums (low activity).
Astronomers have known about the sun’s cyclic nature for almost 200 years. In 1843, German astronomer Samuel Heinrich Schwabe charted the predictable peaks and valleys of solar activity that happen over every 11 years or so.
Did the national solar observatories capture images of an extinction-level CME? (We must assume it wasn’t solar flares because we would have seen the effects eight hours later.)
As for the UFO theory, images of huge crafts near the sun have made the rounds on social media and international tabloids.
SecureTeam showed a 2012 video of a huge sphere very close to the sun that appears to be collecting plasma through an extended armature. Then, the enormous object flies away as the plasma tube fades away. The same video then showed a very similar video clip from 2016.
It would make sense that the People in Charge who have been covering up the reality of UFOs for over 70 years wouldn’t want that upsetting revelation to escape into the public domain. NASA denies everything, of course.
A third reason why the FBI shut and locked down seven sources of solar images has surfaced from an online user brglynn on 9/11/18 who posted:
“Chinese were spying on White Sands Missile Range tests via antennae array at observatory site.”
So there you have it. Something caused the FBI to spring into action and blind the rest of us from seeing what’s going on with our sun. Was it a massive and potentially destructive energy discharge? Was it UFOs? Or was it a foreign attack on U.S. national security?
We mustn’t forget a fourth possible explanation: none of the above. At this point, Big Brother isn’t sharing any information to help us sort out this puzzle.
Which is more worrisome: the possibility that life on Earth may be in its final hours – or the certainty that our government wants to keep us in the dark about it?
