Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 15, 2018

At a small solar observatory tucked away in the woods of a national forest here, scientists and other personnel were commanded last week to leave at once. A week later, the facility remains vacant, and no one is willing to say why. The mysterious and lengthy evacuation, in a state known for secretive military testing and a suspected UFO crash, has spawned a wealth of speculation. Did the researchers spot something extraterrestrial? Was the solar telescope hacked by a foreign power and deployed to spy on, say, the state's missile testing range? Or is there an innocuous explanation, suppressed only because of corporate and government resistance to transparency?

It probably caught sight of some governmental experimental aircraft.

#1 that's actually a thing. The Pentagon tells them where not to look, and they black out those pixels before they release the data.

It's definitely aliens.

Prepare yo' self.

The only good thing about aliens invading now is if they look at Trump they'll probably assume we're a whole lot dumber than we really are. Trump will go down in history as the man who saved American and the world. #MAGA

It's probably something as simple as not finding the right furniture -- Something in between the presence of a Mies van der Rohe and the playful insouciance of an early Le Courbousier. I mean, how far can tri-corner guitar stools go nowadays?

"I mean, how far can tri-corner guitar stools go nowadays?"

Farther than a cement couch.

You are safe if you are an American.

#8 Dude. That was why the internet was invented - so that we would learn the Truth :)

My guess is some type of terrestrial threat to the facilities, but the fact that multiple facilities observing similar subjectmatter closed at roughly the same time is peculiar... possible some type of cyber exploitation.

#11 In the only video we have, the two eclipsing black bodies are of different size as well as going in different directions. And that was from the same camera at the same angle within seconds.

Definitely aliens. They needed the space to hide hordes of ILLEGAL aliens pouring into New Mexico...

You are a racist POS.

But then again you are a Trump supporter so that is not a real surprise.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – After mysterious circumstances closed the Sunspot Solar Observatory in southeast New Mexico on Sept. 6 – prompting conspiracy theories of close encounters and men in black suits – it was announced over the weekend that the facility will "transition back to regular operations" on Monday.

The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy announced the reopening on Sunday, saying it had been cooperating with local authorities on the "investigation of criminal activity that occurred at Sacramento Peak," where the observatory is located. The developments come after over a week of minimal details from law enforcement, leading to theories of all kinds from New Mexicans and others across the country.

"We became concerned that a suspect in the investigation potentially posed a threat to the safety of local staff and residents," AURA wrote on its website Sunday. "In light of recent developments ... we have determined there is no risk to staff."

Seems as tho New Zealand is one of the few countries to continue looking at it.

As for the video with the black moving 'sphere's', going quickly back & forth. I saw, at least one of the 1st vids on this and it is explained very well as to what's actually being 'seen', but from a different perspective than I've seen mentioned here, or any article or other video.

Not saying I've viewed the correct & proper information on this at all. Now that I've said what I have tho, I'll have to go find that damn vid link. Hope the thread is here tomorrow.

As for #15..... hehe. Just imagine what most Americans today think about that politically, purposefully, vague comment coming out of a place so closely connected to Roswell? Regardless or not of your belief in possible intelligent ET life, this one just smells too weird no matter what.

And I believe more people than ever smell whatever it is or is not.

Co-operating with the aliens?

"investigation of criminal activity that occurred at Sacramento Peak"

Resistance fighters....

"In light of recent developments ... we have determined there is no risk to staff."

Because they have been assimilated.

I can't understand how people seem to react to stuff like. I swear to God, I have proven, on this site, and with geometric precision, that a duplicate key exists to the strawberry box.

At this point, the government probably did something really stupid and instead of having to admit to it and have half the country run to their safe spaces and start using it as partisan fodder, they just do something like this and let the people just make up their own stories. Most likely it was probably some Homer employee who ate a doughnut right before falling asleep on top of a publicly-secret missile launch button and they had to evacuate in order to get everything back in order.

Apparently, as is often the case with weirdness such as this, the video I mentioned above & the explanation therein of the black sphere's, has also been given a 'nope, that's not it'.

The theory was, essentially, that the images were captured by a camera on the 'spy' plane we've had circling the globe for who knows how long. The sphere's and their almost impossible movement, were shown to be an effect from the position of the 'plane' & its camera in conjunction with the positions of the earth & sun.

Without the scientific jargon at my disposal I can best describe the effect as, those positions & the times of the positions creating what would look like an eclipse. It would also explain why the sphere appears to travel quickly in one direction & then shortly after, going the other direction.

IOW's, an optical illusion created by a rapidly moving plane's camera. From there, I guess one could speculate that it is possible that the feed from the cam on the super extra top secret plane, were somehow compromised. Maybe hacked is a better word to use there.

Best I got for now, other than the understanding that we will, likely, never know what the deal was. Unless we see criminal charges brought eventually, & especially if it has anything to do with that plane.
