The event “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of US” is planned for September 20th.
Over 470,000 people have signed up for the Facebook event to raid Area 51 in Nevada to “see them aliens.”
As of this Friday afternoon, there have been nearly one million respondents to the event, including the people who marked themselves “interested” in the event, but not yet counted as going to storm Area 51.
The public event invites people to gather on Sept. 20, “We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry.” The ‘Area 51 Alien Center’ is in Amargosa Valley, Nevada.
The highly classified government facility in the Nevada desert is the focus of many conspiracy theories, with many speculating it is where the government hides aliens and UFOs.
