Today's the day everyone was supposed to storm Area 51. Like most plans though, it's been binned off and replaced with a piss up instead.
An alien-themed festival imaginatively named Alienstock has taken the place of the storming event.
Don't worry though, if you were excited to find out what lies inside the mysterious military base then all isn't lost. There's another way to find out the secrets inside the secret facility.
In fact, you can explore to your heart's content from the comfort of your computer screen. By using Google Maps you can decide for yourself if there are visitors from another galaxy in Nevada.
By typing these co-ordinates into Google Maps: 37.24804, -115.800155, or by following this link, you can view the base without breaking any rules or risk of abduction.
According to reports, Area 51 contains a baseball field, an underground base and additional runways on a dry lake which you can just about make out in the image below.
Self-proclaimed alien hunter, Scott Waring, took to his YouTube channel to discuss the underground structure. He said: "I found something in Area 51 that appears to be a newly-built underground base.
"But why would the US government need another underground base there?"
He continued: "Look at this facility, it is really quite incredible.
"It is near a farm for some reason, and I am sure the farm is on private government land."
Plenty of people have turned up to Nevada, not to 'see them aliens', but to party at Alienstock instead.
As KTNV news reporter Joe Bartels reported from the desert, a man was caught 'Naruto-running' behind him.
Bartels said: "There's lots of campers and RVs because there's no hotel rooms in this isolated area.
"But there are people, we're told, coming in from around the world and especially across the country interested to see what happens after that viral idea to storm Area 51 - that secret military base not far from here.
"Authorities are expecting up to 30,000 people to show up during the course of this three-day music festival which begins tonight."
As he signed off the segment, explaining KTNV would be returning later that day with more coverage, a random dude began Naruto running past the camera - a reference to the original event's description, which told people: "If we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let's see them aliens."
