Warrant: FBI agents searched Sunspot Observatory for child pornography--
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A federal search warrant reveals the Sunspot Observatory, in southern New Mexico, was shut down so FBI agents could search for child pornography, according to KTSM, the NBC station in El Paso.

KTSM reports agents traced a source of the pornography to an IP address at the observatory.

According to the warrant, the suspect, possibly a janitor, used a personal computer to connect to the observatory's Wi-Fi.

No charges have been filed yet.

The observatory was abruptly closed for 11 days and conspiracy theories about the closures immediately ensued.

The director of the observatory was even compelled to release a statement saying, “the telescope did not see aliens."

Yep, t turns out the reason for the closure was due to a contract janitor using the wireless internet connect to download and distribute child pornography.

Quote:
An agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation wrote in the affidavit that she was "investigating the activities of an individual who was utilizing the wireless internet service of the National Solar Observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico, to download and distribute child pornography."

The FBI affidavit identified the suspect as a janitor under contract to clean the facility, whose laptop was found to have been used to connect to the observatory's wireless system.

According to the affidavit, observatory officials made the decision to close and evacuate the site out of concern that the suspect might pose a danger to other personnel.

The warrant issued by a U.S. magistrate in Las Cruces, New Mexico, showed that on Sept. 14 agents removed from the man's home three cell phones, five laptops, one iPad, an external hard drive, 16 thumb drives, 89 compact flash disks and other material.

This all makes sense. As the cop show said, "This case is closed."

Note no radio towers. There aren't any. Just the usual little antennas stuck on 3' poles. At that altitude, anything in the clear gets out like you wouldn't believe. You can talk to San Diego from Mt. Wilson with just a walkie-talkie. This place is 4000' higher.

I'll bet that, like Wilson, it gets really spiritual up there. Observatory sites tend to do this.

The story is that he was using the observatory's wi-fi to distribute kiddie porn over the Internet. It came up in an IP check. If this is true, it was pretty dumb to do it that way. Maybe he thought that with all the terabytes of data being downlinked to universities, his little pictures wouldn't get noticed. If he was indeed the janitor, that position does not require advanced data networking skills.

There's still a lot of this story that doesn't compute.

So the janitor is running kid porn on his box from a house on the hill. Why didn't the FBI break down his door at 3 AM the way they usually do? They evacuated the whole place. They said there was a threat, and they couldn't guarantee safety. Maybe everyone's armed to the teeth up there. They have had some problems. If this really is the reason, then when are they going to evacuate Los Angeles?

Scratch the "maybe." You'd have to be off your nut not to be packed on a hill full of expensive equipment in the middle of nowhere.

its just a hill in NM. its not el lay.
not everyone is packing like el lay. some places sure but..those hills? idk.

are you saying youve read or learned or are surmizing he was using their wifi to mail out pic
of kiddie porn, adult too or just kiddies.
what was he using their wifi for...to watch it? or something else.

this whole thing still mystifies me. in NM they generally just bust the fucking door down.
they arrest then let them go in about 3 days.

I don't know either. True, it's not a dystopian American large city. Someone was quoted mentioning crime in the area, but of course that's a single sourced "he said she said they said" and not authoritative.

The official statement only said that the janitor was using the observatory's wi-fi to distribute kiddie porn. The FBI seized everything that looked like a computer or cell phone, and a bazillion storage devices.

Pretty vague.
