A sudden, rather mysterious, shutdown of a solar observatory facility by the FBI in the United States raked curiosity of many.
While some speculated alien theory, others contemplated if the observatory spotted something which it shouldn't have, and therefore the shutdown.
Amid speculations gaining ground, the National Solar Observatory -- which manages the facility -- on its social media handle, cited "security issue" behind the shutdown, a reason which doesn't seem to go well with the masses, who demand more clarity on the incident.
"Thank you all for your patience while the closure at Sunspot Observatory is resolved. Our other facilities remain open and NSO is operating as normal. AURA - our management organization - is addressing a security issue at Sunspot Observatory at Sacramento Peak, New Mexico and has decided to temporarily vacate the facility as a precautionary measure," NSO Facebook post read.
