Alien enthusiasts descend on Nevada desert near secretive U.S. base

UFO enthusiasts began descending on rural Nevada near the secret U.S. military installation known as Area 51, long rumored to house government secrets about alien life, with local authorities hoping the visitors were coming in peace. Some residents of Rachel, a remote desert town of 50 people a short distance from the military base, worried their community might be overwhelmed by unruly crowds turning out in response to a recent, viral social-media invitation to “storm” Area 51.

The town, about 150 miles north of Las Vegas, lacks a grocery store or even a gasoline station. Dozens of visitors began arriving outside Rachel’s only business an extraterrestrial-themed motel and restaurant called the Little A’Le’Inn parking themselves in cars, tents and campers. A fire truck was stationed nearby.
