5. Area 51 and Alien Research
The popular 1996 movie called “Independence Day” was the one that started this huge hoax surrounding Area 51. This movie claims that aliens and all space technology are being hidden and studied in Area 51, which is a well-known military base located in the desert, only 80 miles west of Las Vegas.
Those in the area feed into the hoax surrounding this place by saying they see strange things going on, and different aircraft flying out of this area. Due to Area 51’s findings and happenings being completely classified, many believe that shady things are happening.
