Let Google Maps satisfy your Storm Area 51 yearnings

Updated September 25, 2019 - 3:40 pm

Maybe you didn’t hit the dusty roads to Rachel or Hiko to join the curious, rebellious and/or joyous for the Storm Area 51 activities.

Perhaps you passed on buying alien beer in green cans.

Conceivably, you might have been occupied with music of all types and sounds.

If you missed on the extraterrestrial exercises but now have regrets because the parties are done, Google Maps is here to help.

Call up “Groom Lake NV,” take the Street View icon and hover over the area. The icon turns into a nifty little spaceship.

CNET.com reported that Google Maps confirmed the fun via its Twitter account.
