We are now less than one month away from one of the more bizarre planned events in American pop culture history: The proposed “storming” of Area 51.
Before it was removed from Facebook, over 2 million people had RSVP’d to an event entitled “Storm Area 51, they can’t stop us all”, whose purpose was fairly self-explanatory. The event page soon became a destination for memes and jokes about exactly what the “stormers” would discover after running roughshod through the Nevada desert and the base’s security, mostly focusing on the longstanding myth that Area 51 is where the US government holds secretive extraterrestrial technology – and perhaps even alien bodies.
And while it was all fun and games online, one US Marine has a much starker take on the UFO phenomenon after a rash of sightings has alarmed observers in 2019.
The mysterious objects – which often appear long, thin and shaped like a snake – first came to light back in June when a YouTuber spotted a strange light above the Mojave Desert in California.take our poll - story continues below
Soon, UFO hunters flooded the internet with their own videos of the strange “crafts”, from one being spotted during a meteor shower in Wyoming to another apparently “moving like it was alive” over New York.
Nick Karnaze, an ex-United States Marine Corps soldier who served in Afghanistan as an Intel Officer, has now told this site that the objects have been seen across the Earth.
Some researchers have suggested that these objects are simply advanced military tech out for testing. Karnaze disputes that idea.
Speaking exclusively with Daily Star Online, Nick said: “It’s interesting because if we’re assuming that this could be a potentially classified government programme you’d expect it to be that those types of objects are restricted to certain areas.
“But now that we have reports from various countries across the globe of witnesses seeing similar objects.
“For me, it indicates something potentially beyond a classified programme because, again, in the military community you’re only going to be testing those classified programmes in certain areas.”
Karnaze doesn’t have all the answers, however.
When asked about the true nature of these craft, the Marine was quick to reiterate that, at this time, they can only be designated as UFO’s or UAP’s: Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.
