The U.S. Air Force has warned members of a Facebook group that jokingly plans on storming Area 51 in Nevada that the armed forces are "ready to protect America and its assets". This is surprisingly low for an event for which over 1 million people may "attend".

If you aren't familiar, "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us" is the internet sensation du jour with more than a million Facebook accounts marked as "going" to raid the alleged secret government facility on September 20. Time will tell. But the skies are not longer the limit.

The event caters to early risers - it's set for 3 6 a.m.

The entire stunt seems amusing until it sinks in that over a million Facebook users have already claimed that they'll be attending the event. "Lets see them aliens", reads the message on the Facebook page of the event.

I never imagined having to write a speech like this, to the most attractive woman who ever lived. "I lost my rock". I want to wake up from a dream. "She's not in ache and eventually feels regular once more".

One person, named Jackson Barnes, offered a "game plan" with a diagram for storming the base. He says, "I just thought it would be amusing and get me some thumbsy uppies on the Internet".

In short, it's thought that Area 51 holds all the government secrets about aliens - though the Central Intelligence Agency has published documents confirming its use as a test base.

It's unknown how numerous 1.5 million Facebook attendees would actually travel to the remote location in Nevada for the event, as the page has sparked Internet memes poking fun at the idea of storming the Air Force range for the opportunity to see aliens. He has strongly urged people not to show up there.

"The only place there was ever any alien technology was at Site S4, south of Area 51 proper".
