New Mexico's Sunspot Solar Observatory, little-known until this month, is now garnering international attention, since it's sudden shutdown and just as sudden re-opening on September 17.  KSFR's Ellen Lockyer lets us in on some of the far-fetched theories posed by conspiracy buffs, and on some of the actual information out there regarding the case.  Spoiler:  the FBI still is not fessing up to why the facility  was evacuated in the first place.
