• A Facebook event titled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” has the interest of over 200,000 people on Facebook
  • The event is scheduled for September 20 at 3:00 am
  • The main strategy is for everyone to “Naruto run” towards the base at the same time

An event on Facebook titled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” has caught the attention of over 200,000 people. Over 91,000 people say they are going and another 117,000 people are “interested” in the event.

Storm Area 51 They Can’t Stop All of Us

The event was most likely started as a joke seeing as the creators are “Shitposting cause im in shambles” and “SmyleeKun.” However, now that the event has gone viral there is a very likely chance that people will show up to the area that has long been a subject of discussion for UFO enthusiasts.

The event is scheduled for September 20, 2019, at 3:00 am. The about section reads, “We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.” As the event continues to spread across the Web, the chances continue to grow that UFO enthusiasts will show up at Area 51 on the event day. Whether or not anybody will actually storm Area 51 will be another story, as chances are security will be increased around the area the day of the event. The event page suggests using the “Naruto run” as a main strategy.

What Is Area 51

Following World War II, the Soviet Union began secretively working on their technologies. In the early 1950s, the U.S. Navy and the Air Force began sending out low-flying reconnaissance missions over the USSR despite the risk of being shot down. This led to former President Dwight D. Eisenhower approving the secret development of a high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft in November of 1954. The secret project was initially called the “U-2 program” but was later renamed “Paradise Ranch” in an attempt to entice new workers by leading engineer Kelly Johnson.

Testing on U-2 began in July 1955, at Area 51, which launched public claims of seeing unidentified flying objects. Commercial airline pilots were responsible for many of the sightings since they had never witnessed an aircraft flying at the high altitudes of the U-2. Commercial airlines flew at altitudes between 10,000 to 20,000 feet. Military aircraft at the time flew around 40,000 feet. The U-2 was able to fly at an altitude of over 60,000 feet. Since the project was secret, they were not allowed to discuss the U-2 with the public and often used “natural phenomena” or “high-altitude weather research” as common explanations for UFO sightings.

While U-2 operations halted in the 1950s, other aircraft such as the A-12, Bird of Prey, F-117A, and TACIT BLUE have been developed at Area 51. The area has also been said to obtain foreign aircraft, like in the 1970s operation “Project Have Doughnut.” The project focused on obtaining Soviet MiGs to study their technology. They would fly these planes over Area 51 against American planes in order to develop strategies for combat. Over the years Area 51 has become the most secretive facility in the country. It is so secretive that the facility is actually allowed to operate outside federal law.

Area 51 Is Known As A Hazardous Waste Site

After denying the existence of Area 51 for over fifty years, in 2013 the government finally admitted to the existence of the most secretive government facility in America. The U.S. government declassified a report on a secret facility in Nevada in August of 2013 that quite possibly could have went unnoticed had it not had the two words UFO enthusiasts had screamed for decades: Area 51. While the report did not unlock a chamber of secrets revealing aliens and other extraterrestrial activity within the facility, it did open the door to further evaluate claims of the hazardous waste site it had become.

Workers from Area 51 came together in 1990 and described how the government had discarded equipment and hazardous waste in open trenches, some the length of football fields. The waste would be doused in jet fuel then set on fire creating a highly toxic smoke referred to as “London fog” by workers. Many of the facility’s workers received classic skin and respiratory illnesses due to the exposure to burning hazardous waste. One major obstacle for workers involved in a lawsuit over the illnesses they obtained was that the government refused to acknowledge Area 51’s existence. Meaning the workers were not receiving appropriate medical care as they did not even know what exactly they had been exposed to.

Despite pictures of the base, affidavits from workers on the base, pictures of planes taking off in Las Vegas and then landing in Area 51, and even pictures of the Area 51 base, the government denied the base existed. It was not until attorney Jonathan Turley located Russian satellite pictures of the base that the government confirmed Area 51’s existence. Turley eventually found that Russia had a virtual catalog of Area 51 for sale that you could buy online as long as you had a credit card. Despite an endless amount of hurdles throughout the lawsuit, they prevailed in demonstrating the government acted outside of federal law but it still was not exactly a victory.

The government refused to declassify what hazardous material they had burned in the trenches. This meant the workers still could not tell their doctors what they had been exposed to. After the death of a worker named Bob Frost, an analysis was done on tissue samples from his body. The nation’s premier scientists found unidentifiable and exotic substances they could not recognize. The government still refused to identify the substances workers were exposed to. By the time the 2013 declassified report was released, the statute of limitations for many of those workers had passed. The government managed to use their secrecy as a protection against crimes committed at Area 51.

The 1947 Roswell Crash

Many stories center around Area 51, such as the Roswell crash which has led people to believe there are aliens actually living at the facility following a UFO crash. In 1947, a rancher discovered unidentifiable debris in his sheep pasture just outside Roswell, New Mexico. The Air Force base asserted it was nothing more than a weather balloon but many did not accept that answer and instead believed it was the remains from an extraterrestrial flying saucer. The rancher, Mac Brazel stated he found a mess of metallic sticks, plastic and foil reflectors, and scraps of heavy, glossy, paper-like material. After Brazel was unable to identify the strange objects, he called the Roswell sheriff. The sheriff then called nearby Roswell Air Force base and soldiers spread across Brazel’s field to gather the mysterious objects and before taking them away in armored trucks.

Many have since claimed pictures and video from the crash show aliens that are now living among humans and teaching us their technologies. The government later claimed the Roswell crash was part of Project Mogul. Project Mogul used high-altitude balloons to carry low-frequency sound sensors into the tropopause, a part of the Earth’s atmosphere that acts as a sound channel. Sound waves can travel for thousands of miles without interference in the tropopause, which led scientists to believe they could eavesdrop on nuclear tests in the Soviet Union if they sent microphones into the sound channel. Regardless of the claims of Project Mogul, true believers still share footage of an alleged alien from the Roswell crash.

  1. Hi Meko,
    Interesting article, but it would be better with proper grammar. The plural of aircraft has no letter s added.
