Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully have different theories as to what is happening at the solar observatory.   

This is pretty weird.   Sunspots aren't really a strategic secret.   Astronomers tend to share their data.   NASA has a free public website with current solar flare activity.

Tyson's comments on evidence and what should not be adjudicated in the media,  in his Saturday FB post,  seem spot on.   I like Tyson and have a bias in his favor,  so take my opinion as worth somewhere between zero and diddleysquat.  In the absence of a third-party witness,  this may come down to people choosing whoever they feel is most credible.
