HIKO, Nev. (AP) — The festivals are over and Earthlings from around the globe headed home Sunday after a weekend camping and partying in the dusty Nevada desert and trekking to remote gates of Area 51, a formerly top-secret U.S.
HIKO, Nev. (AP) — Events involving thousands of Earthlings answering an internet buzz about an invitation to "Storm Area 51" in the Nevada desert have been mostly festive, with crowds numbering in the low thousands and few arrests, officials said.
HIKO, Nev. (AP) — About 75 people arrived early Friday at a gate at the once-secret Area 51 military base in Nevada — at the time appointed by an internet hoaxster to "storm" the facility to see space aliens — and one person was arrested, authorities said.
HIKO, Nev. (AP) — Sound checks echoed from a distant main stage while Daniel Martinez whirled and danced at dusty makeshift festival grounds just after sunset in Rachel, the Nevada town closest to the once-secret Area 51 military base.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two Dutch tourists who told authorities they wanted to take video of Area 51 have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor trespass and illegal parking following their arrests at a different secure U.S.
Started as a prank event on Facebook, “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” had more than 2 million people signed on to attend the September 20 gathering (now festival) near the secret military base and rumored site of alien technology.
The family that owns property near Area 51 that was seized by the Air Force through eminent domain says their latest independent appraisal of the value of the land north of Las Vegas exceeds $40 million.
