Over 400,000 Facebook users pledge Area 51 raid: 'Lets see them aliens'

If you'll be in Nevada on September 20, there's a Facebook event that may pique your interest.

Over 300,000 people have signed on to a Facebook event pledging to raid Area 51 in Nevada in a quest to "see them aliens".

From there, the group will "Naruto run" with their arms stretched behind them like Naruto Uzumaki in the Japanese anime series "Naruto", and therefore "move faster than their bullets".

Or, put more simply, "Lets see them aliens." . The area was officially acknowledged as a military site in 2013, but the theories live on.

"P.S. Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan".

"Area 51" is the codename for the highly-classified remote detachment of California's Edwards Air Base, located 83 miles northwest of Las Vegas.

But he warned of economic weakness in other major economies, and a downturn in business investment driven by trade war worries. After raising rates four times a year ago , the Fed has indicated in January that it would be "patient" with future hikes.


"We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry", the detail of the event reads. I just thought it would be amusing and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet.

Based on the name of the page and its number of attendees, the Facebook event is hoping to rely on the sheer volume of individuals to successfully raid Area 51, which is heavily guarded by armed military personnel.

Though Area 51 was established in 1955, the mystery began somewhere in the 1980s, when a man claimed to have been employed there and saw scientists engineer an alien aircraft, which some believe may have been modeled after a UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico, in the late '40s. (In 1996, Nevada renamed state Route 375 to "Extraterrestrial Highway") But those who venture too far into the land surrounding the base are greeted with warning signs indicating they could be fined or jailed for trespassing and taking photos.

It comes after a range of alleged UFO sightings in the area.

Back in 2014, a tour bus accidentally entered the boundary of Area 51.

So what do they know?
