In the belly of Nevada, surrounded by miles of undeveloped desert, lies a mystery. Area 51, a secret military base within Nellis Test and Training Range — so secret the government did not acknowledge its existence until 2013 — is here. According to UFO lore, this is where the Pentagon has stored frozen extraterrestrials and recovered alien spacecraft, especially in an area on the base known as Groom Lake. Drive the highway just north of Area 51 — also known as the Extraterrestrial Highway or Nevada state Route 375 — and you just may see a UFO, as some have claimed.
