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

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.

The mysterious Area 51 has been the focus of conspiracy theories for decades, and many people think it's where the U.S. government stores its secrets about aliens and UFOs.

Yes, Area 51 is definitely real - and even though the report indicated it was nothing more than an aircraft-testing facility and mentioned nothing about extraterrestrial life, the revelation gave credence to conspiracy theories alleging the government uses the base to hide aliens and their spacecraft.

"We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry", the event details read.

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

"Driving from OH, got 3 seats left", someone posted. While the creators of the page-"SmyleeKun" and "Shitposting cause im in shambles"-and their description may make the event sound goofy, the hundreds of thousands of confirmations indicate that at least a few people may be taking the effort seriously".

Stretch those quads and prep that tinfoil hat!

One user shared a video of the Naruto running style, which was mentioned in the event's description as the best method for moving 'faster than their bullets'.

"So hear me out..."

"I have enlisted the help of an organization named 'Men in Black.' Has anyone heard of them?" Maybe they'll find the Roswell alien hanging out with Elvis and Tupac, maybe they'll discover the film set where the Moon landings were staged, or maybe they'll all get stopped.

Another suggested inviting Chuck Norris.

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.

Area 51 was trending on Twitter Friday as a Facebook event inviting the public to participate in a civilian invasion of shadowy military base has drawn the interest on almost a million people.
