“I keep telling people, everybody’s looking at the gate. Look to the skies because you don’t know what you’re going to see out here in the desert,” Miller told Fox News. “Stop looking just at the gate and broaden your mind.”
On the road to the gate, there were dozens of vehicles traveling in either direction, kicking up large plumes of dust along the way.
After parking their cars near a “road closed” sign, about 20 people walked down to the gate that serves as an entrance to Area 51. When they finally arrived, they were greeted by about eight police vehicles, with officers milling around.
One officer told Fox News that people had been coming and going throughout the day, but their numbers were never overwhelming. Most groups stuck around for up to 10 minutes, taking selfies and other photos by the gate before heading back to continue their treks through the desert to the sights along the “Extraterrestrial Highway.”
For Daisy Blue and Benton Huang from Tennessee, the trip to the gate took thousands of miles. While they weren’t greeted by a massive crowd, Benton said it was fun to come up and see officers outside on guard and interact with them.
“It lived up to my expectations,” Huang told Fox News.
Area 51 tested aircraft ranging from the U-2 in the 1950s to the B-2 stealth bomber in the 1980s. The government spent decades refusing to acknowledge the site even existed, before releasing documents confirming it in 2013.The continued secrecy surrounding the site has fueled rumors of government studies of extraterrestrials and crashed UFOs.
The sheriff in neighboring Nye County reported that about 40 people gathered overnight at a conspicuously green “Area 51 Alien Center” in Amargosa Valley about 3 a.m. and approached a base gate before leaving after “heated warnings” from officers.
The gathering at the gate, which could have been a scene of conflict, was instead something that was “awesome” for Alex Bauer, Danny Meyer, and Jack Homan of Chicago.
“It passed my expectations,” Meyer told Fox News. “It’s a little anticlimactic, but I’m from the Midwest so it’s kind of beautiful just looking around at all the scenery.”
