‘Million strong’ raid on Area 51 will be live-streamed on Facebook organisers reveal as they confirm date to storm base and ‘see them aliens’ – The Sun

ALIEN enthusiasts from all over the globe now have a chance to get in on the Storm Area 51 action, with a local entertainment company promising to live stream the raid.

The "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us" event with over 1.4 million confirmed attendees will be live streamed by Las Vegas retail and entertainment complex, Area 15,  and "costumes & tin foil hats are required."

In a cryptic tweet, the yet to open complex wrote: "Okay. Now we’re curious about the storming of #AREA51.

"We’re going to live stream the “event” here at #AREA15 to watch what goes down.

"And costumes & tin foil hats are required.

"Leave your info & we’ll send you the details," the cryptic message reads with a link to their website.

The plan to "storm" top-secret Area 51 on September 20 was hatched by three anonymous Facebpook pages – S***posting Because I'm in Shambles, SmyleeKun and The Hidden Sound.


Their plan is to "meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry" on September 20.

"If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets.

"Lets see them aliens," organisers wrote.

Area 51 was officially acknowledged as an Air Force base in 2013, but has long been shrouded in conspiracy.

Rumours that it is a UFO and alien base holding US government secrets have been flying about for decades.

The tongue in cheek joke, meme and plan to steal extra-terrestrial pets, "Storm Area 51," is thought to have come about following a Netflix documentary.

What is Area 51? The top secret US air base steeped in extra-terrestrial intrigue

AREA 51 is a highly classified US air base in the remote Nevada desert.

It is officially known as Homey Airport, but gained its now famous name from CIA documents that referred to it by the codename Area 51.

The exact purpose of the air base is not known publicly, and the area is heavily restricted.

Trespassers can face huge fines and lengthy prison sentences for setting foot in the zone.

Purchased by the US government in 1955, evidence suggests the site is used as a testing area for experimental aircraft and weapons.

But the secrecy surrounding it has led conspiracy theorists to suggest the area is holding extra-terrestrial secrets.

Theories suggest engineers examine crashed spacecrafts — and even hold meetings with aliens from across the galaxy.

The crash of a weather balloon at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 sparked wild theories of an alien ship crash.

Some have suggested Area 51 is still storing parts of the crashed ship — or even its alien inhabitants.


In December, Netflix released a documentary focusing on conspiracy theorist Bob Lazar who claimed that he took apart a UFO and read government documents about aliens involved in life on Earth as a physicist working in Area 51.

The area, which has long been a conspiracy theorist's Mecca, is now enjoying a fresh wave of interest as young people's discovered Lazar's "secrets."

Now the event – that originally started as a tongue in cheek plan- has since gained traction.

The Facebook event currently has 1.4 million confirmed "going" with a further 1.1 million "interested".

US forces even released a statement on the matter, with a spokesperson promising the "U.S Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets."

The huge event has hit headlines globally and sparked a flurry of hilarious memes – mostly concerned with what people plan to do with their pet aliens they're stealing from the base and how to sneak past the heavily armed guards.

But with hundreds of signs littering the military base warning trespassers that they will be removed by force, prohibiting photography and generally encouraging any curious people to very firmly stay away – it's doubtful there's much chance of there being anything to live stream come September 20.
