The Extraterrestrial Highway, Nevada

By on Saturday, March 21, 2015

Deep in Nevada desert, runs a lonely stretch of highway from State Route 318 at Crystal Springs to U.S. Route 6 at Warm Springs. This is Nevada State Route 375, but since 1996, it’s popularly referred to as the “Extraterrestrial Highway” because of the countless UFO sightings people claim to have made along this route. Most of these reports, if not all, could be easily explained: the highway runs alongside the vast Nellis Air Force Base, which contains the Nevada Test Site, where many top secret missiles, aircraft and weaponry have been tested since the 1950s. Even today, as you drive along the highway, you can hear the sonic boom of F18s as they zoom overhead breaking the sound barrier, every now and then.
