Established in 1955 out in the Nevada desert, Area 51 is an open secret of UFO sightings. The trend first started when a weather balloon was spotted nearby, leading to many more mistaken identity reports for balloons only. Every day, tours take a small group near this base where it’s said they have recovered UFOs from other parts of the world.
Area 51 is a secret military facility where new aircraft are tested and developed. This area is protected by extensive walls, fences, guns, and lots of security personnel to make sure no one sneaks into Area 51. Any unauthorized person that gets too close to Area 51 may be shot on sight!
Storm Area 51
On July 1st, 2019 a Facebook event was created titled “Storm Area 51 Raid”. Scheduled for September 20th, 2019, the event rose to popularity after a video of two men claiming that they would storm the base and break it open. On the days leading up to the raid more than 40,000 people arrived in the region leading to the United States Military issuing a statement. In short government officials said, “Area 51 is a United States Military training facility and the U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets”. While the event drew large crowds, the raid did not happen and two men were arrested for trespassing.
