So what did happen at Sunspot?

A security threat, though the specific nature of that threat remains unclear. According to a statement from AURA, the consortium and the National Science Foundation decided to vacate the site temporarily because of a security issue:

"AURA has been cooperating with an on-going law enforcement investigation of criminal activity that occurred at Sacramento Peak. During this time, we became concerned that a suspect in the investigation potentially posed a threat to the safety of local staff and residents. For this reason, AURA temporarily vacated the facility and ceased science activities at this location.

"The decision to vacate was based on the logistical challenges associated with protecting personnel at such a remote location, and the need for expeditious response to the potential threat. AURA determined that moving the small number of on-site staff and residents off the mountain was the most prudent and effective action to ensure their safety."

The consortium said that it recognizes that the lack of communication while the facility was being evacuated was "concerning and frustrating for some."

"However, our desire to provide additional information had to be balanced against the risk that, if spread at the time, the news would alert the suspect and impede the law enforcement investigation. That was a risk we could not take," the statement says.

And the helicopter? House, the sheriff, told The Washington Post that Black Hawk helicopters aren't uncommon in the area.

A call to an FBI spokesperson was not immediately returned. A person at the bureau's Albuquerque office said he had no information and could not comment.

The consortium said the site will have extra security for now, because of people showing up at the facility since its closure: "Given the significant amount of publicity the temporary closure has generated, and the consequent expectation of an unusual number of visitors to the site, we are temporarily engaging a security service while the facility returns to a normal working environment."

James McAteer, the New Mexico State University professor who leads operations of the telescope at the site, said he was impressed by the theories that people had come up with for the closure.

"It was the first time I've had to deny contact with Aliens and Death-by-solar-storm and underground tunnels and New communications via X-rays all at one time," he wrote in an email to NPR.

The observatory's reopening means that researchers can get to back to doing what they do: staring at the sun.

We will never know. What we do know is that conspiracy theories cooked up by distant, ill informed, hoping for something edgy, casual observers will be wrong 100 times more often than not.

Fox News more like fox in the henhouse .notice strip clubs commonly use foxes in their logos .In this case i say deflection using pedo as Boogie man .While town evacuated because some one had pedo porn ,strains the credibility a bit.
Obelisk on site. Methinks whole shennanigan was for a second party to come in and use facilities in private.

Why the helicopters and why were several residents evacuated?

That story doesn't explain the entire event.

Not only that; they either have a very lousy staff to come with cover stories, or they do it on purpose for some reason.

I do not label myself. What I stand for is based on my own convictions, and I don't care which box - the left one or the right one - they happen to belong to.
