Hundreds of thousands of Facebook users have expressed interest in attending what has been described as a mass takeover of Area 51.

The apparent alien-conspiracy theorists behind the event scheduled for Sept. 20 say they expect to exhibit strength in numbers at the famously well-guarded government site.

“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” a description states.

Organizers further suggest that if participants “naruto run” to “move faster than their bullets.”

While elements of the post suggest it was intended as a joke, it is unclear how many of the nearly 500,000 people who have expressed interest in it will actually make the trek to the remote Nevada location.
