Though the event is months away, social media users have already begun to speculate about what might be inside the highly classified Air Force facility in the Nevada desert.

The facility has long been the subject of conspiracy theories, with many speculating that it could be the government's hiding place for secrets about aliens and UFOs.

New Orleans faces a never-before-seen problem with Tropical Storm Barry

New Orleans faces a never-before-seen problem with Tropical Storm Barry Tropical Storm Barry presents New Orleans with an unprecedented problem, according to the National Weather Service. The Mississippi River, which is usually at 6 to 8 feet in midsummer in the Big Easy, is now at 16 feet, owing to record flooding that's taken place this year all along the waterway.

And as far as aliens go, stranger things have happened — an incident from 25 years ago in which hundreds of people reported seeing UFOs along Lake Michigan remains unsolved.

The event's organizers might not be as eager to discover if the truth is out there, though: one post on the page detailing a "game plan" for the event included a disclaimer at the bottom.

"Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan," wrote a Facebook user named Jackson Barnes.

"I'm not responsible if people decide to actually storm area (sic) 51," he said.
