ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An observatory in the mountains of southern New Mexico that is dedicated unlocking the mysteries of the sun has found itself at the center of a mystery that is creating a buzz here on earth. The Sunspot Solar Observatory has been closed for more than a week. Authorities remain tightlipped Friday, saying only that a security concern was behind the decision to abruptly vacate and lock up the remote facility on Sept 6. The FBI referred all questions to the group that manages the site, the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy. Officials there say they're working with authorities.
