Over 260,000 people have joined a Facebook group to invade the restricted military facility, Area 51. Area 51 is located in Lincoln County, Nevada and it is 83 miles northwest of Las Vegas.
According to FOX News, the Facebook event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us” will occur on September 20 at 3 a.m. The group plans to meet up at the Area 51 Alien Travel Center before breaking into the military facility.
“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,”
Some Twitter users reacted to the group by creating memes and jokes about the scheduled “breach.”

The event was organized by Jackson Barnes and he says the Facebook group was a joke after it went viral on Twitter and Instagram.
“Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet. I’m not responsible if people decide to actually storm area 51.”
