313K join group pledging to storm Area 51 to search for aliens

Area 51 on Google Maps

The US government first acknowledged the base in 2013.

As of Friday afternoon, more than 466,000 people had signed up. Planned for September 20 in Amargosa Valley, an hour's drive away from Las Vegas, the event page is now filled with thousands of posts theorizing the best way to break into the top-secret facility.

"We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry". In order to get past security, attendees have come up with a plan to outrun any bullets that may greet them by copying the running style of an anime cartoon character called Naruto.

They're all members of a Facebook group created with the intention to "storm" Area 51 and "see them aliens." .

A guy named SmyleeKun, who is a Twitch celebrity, created a joke Facebook event to storm Area 51 on September 20, and many news outlets are covering the event like it's real.

"My mom said she'd take us to Area 51 or pick us up, but she's not doing both", one person commented. Its unusual reputation could be attributed to the testing of confidential military planes and other aircraft at the area, which isn't accessible to the public.

Some social media users expressed concern over the timing of the event.

Area 51 is a mysterious place which is surrounded by numerous theories and myths related to aliens and UFOs, reports CNN.

But for UFO conspiracy buffs, Area 51 is where the government has safeguarded evidence of extraterrestrial life with the remains dead aliens packed on ice and the wreckage of crashed flying saucers stored in secure hangars.

In 2014, a tour bus carting four passengers near Area 51 inadvertently drove through the warning signs and entered the base, Las Vegas Now reported. All of the passengers were given a fine of $650 each and a misdemeanor conviction. The incident was caught on video, making it obvious the tour's passengers thought it was all part of the experience.
