We're alone? Almost 400 thousand people have registered in the Facebook event to 'assault' Area 51 and 'see them, alien'

If you have ever wondered if we are alone in the galaxy, you are not a space rarity.

More than 379,000 people signed up for a Facebook event in which they promised to storm Area 51 in southern Nevada in an effort to "see them, alien." Some 396,000 additional respondents were marked as "interested" on the event page as of Thursday night.

"If we [N] aruto run, we can move faster than their bullets," says the description of the event, making a humorous reference to a Japanese manga character known for running with his arms stretched back and his head forward.

The page invites participants to meet on September 20 at the Area 51 Alien Center, a combined restaurant, convenience store and brothel in Amargosa Valley, Nevada, about 90 miles from Las Vegas.

Although there are still months to go before the event, users of social networks have already begun to speculate about what could be inside the highly classified Air Force facilities in the Nevada desert.

The installation has long been the subject of conspiracy theories, and many speculated that it could be the government hideout for secrets about aliens and UFOs.

But those who expect an extraterrestrial sighting may want to look elsewhere: Nevada alone ranks 13th in the country in terms of unexplained aircraft sightings. The state of Washington was first on the list.

And as far as the aliens are concerned, strange things have happened, an incident 25 years ago in which hundreds of people reported seeing UFOs along Lake Michigan unresolved.

However, the organizers of the event may not be so eager to discover if the truth is out there: a publication on the page detailing a "game plan" for the event included a disclaimer at the bottom.

"Hi, US government, This is a joke, and I really do not intend to move forward with this plan," wrote a Facebook user named Jackson Barnes.
