Alien Enthusiasts Gather Near Area 51

Thousands are expected to travel to desert towns in Nevada this weekend, sparked by a viral call to “storm Area 51” in hopes of overpowering the US military and revealing whatever government secrets might be hiding there.

It’s ridiculous that anyone thinks they are actually going to get into Area 51.

UFO enthusiasts began descending on rural Nevada on Thursday near the secret U.S. military installation known as Area 51, long rumored to house government secrets about alien life, with local authorities hoping the visitors were coming in peace.

Residents of Rachel, Nevada, a remote desert town of 50 people about 12 miles outside the base, worried their community might be overwhelmed by unruly crowds turning out in response to a recent viral social-media invitation to “storm” Area 51.

The man behind the planned gathering, the date for which was never explained, worries about a “possible humanitarian disaster” in Rachel, which lacks a grocery store or even a gasoline station.

Nevertheless, dozens of visitors began arriving on Thursday outside the town’s only business – an extraterrestrial-themed motel and restaurant called the Little A’Le’Inn – parking themselves in cars, tents and campers. A fire truck was stationed nearby.

Area 51 was shrouded in secrecy for decades, stoking conspiracy theories that it housed the remnants of a flying saucer and the bodies of its alien crew from a supposed unidentified flying object crash in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. The U.S. government did not confirm the base existed until 2013, when it released CIA archives saying the site was used to test top-secret spy planes. More
