A prank event on Facebook that's attracted more than 1 million interested people suggests that a mass of people attempt to run into the mysterious site at 3 a.m. on September 20. "We're freaking out. We honestly can't handle that many people".

The creator of the viral Facebook event jokingly asking people to storm Area 51 later this year to "see them aliens" has come forward and said it was "pretty wild" how the event created an enormous amount of buzz, according to a new report.

In the details of the event, the creator suggested "if we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets". "I've had a couple of people [direct message] the page and they're like, 'I'm willing to die for the government, let's do this!'"

After decades of government officials refusing to acknowledge Area 51, the Central Intelligence Agency released declassified documents in 2013 referring to the 8,000-square mile installation by name and locating it on a map near the dry Groom Lake bed.

For starters, it's definitely not a tourist attraction.

The U.S. Air Force says it uses the 2.9 million-acre area for training and testing purposes.

Record-Breaking Heat Wave Threatens Most of U.S.
Temperatures of around 100 degrees are possible in Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, New York City, Kansas City, St. An excessive heat warning was issued for parts of OH early Friday morning and is expected to continue until at least 8 p.m.

Area 51 is the top-secret Air Force facility long associated in the public mind with extraterrestrials and UFOs. "Our sources also tell us local cops will work together to curb any attempts to even wander near Area 51 property".

He didn't realize his comical call to invade one of the most secretive and mysterious locations on Earth would become a rally cry, but after keeping a low profile, Roberts told KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, he never planned on invading the Nevada military base.

Of course, the Air Force has encouraged people to reconsider. "This is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan".

"It started out as a pure stroke of imagination, something amusing, something cool, but I don't want anyone to get hurt", said Roberts from his Bakersfield, Ca home.

So maybe people's excitement about Area 51 is best directed toward looking at the memes - and good thing there's a lot to choose from.
