This weekend (September 19-23, 2019) events in Hiko, Rachel, and Downtown Las Vegas spotlight Area 51

Location: 83 miles (134 km) north-northwest of Las Vegas

We are fascinated by the viral sensation that has caused consternation, opportunism, and buzzworthy distractions.

Local businesses in the rural towns of Hiko and Rachel have embraced the area’s association with alien mythology. Nevada State Route 375 is affectionately called the Extraterrestrial Highway (officially designated in 1996).

Global coverage
NZ Herald: What started in June as a Facebook event called ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’, the webpage found surprising popularity. 2,116,175 people have signed up as “attending.” The joke event which urged the internet to turn up en masse to the Top Secret base and demand to be let inside is scheduled for this Friday.

Wikipedia: Area 51 is the common name of a highly classified United States Air Force (USAF) facility located within the Nevada Test and Training Range. Officially, the facility is called Homey Airport (KXTA) or Groom Lake, named after the salt flat situated next to its airfield. Although details of the facility’s operations are not publicly known, the USAF says it is an open training range.The USAF acquired the site in 1955, primarily for flight testing the Lockheed U-2 aircraft.
