Just found an April Fools joke on Google Earth. Area 51 has some visitors.
Update: Yow – this page currently has over 2500 Diggs (and a total of over 150,000 hits!!!) and is the top Digg story of the day! Thankfully 1&1’s servers are handling the load quite well…
Update: also listed on Wikipedia and waxy.org
Update: hello Washington Post readers…

HAHAHA, this is good! I just booted up my google earth and it took me a bit but i found it! This is just for April fools? Nice find!
Nice find, next time i’ll put it in the hangar
Nice find. Google have always had that witty humor going on. Just to say that its now been removed since I last checked!
Awesome! Not as funny as Pigeon Rank, but it’s cool that they hid some easter eggs in Google Earth!

How come Google Earth can’t find Roswell when they have Area 51? Weird ;).
Slapo: Have you tried typing in Roswell, NM?

how did you find that???
There was a hint posted on the Google Earth Community forum. It took me roughly 5 minutes of scanning Area 51 to find them.
Nice to have a little BBQ and clean the windshield. Good find!

Can you also tell wich hosting plan you? Im very interested in a good hosting plan.
I have 1&1’s Linux Business plan. $9.99/month, 100 GB disk, Linux shell, 2000 email addresses, etc etc etc. So far (after 2+ years) it has been very stable, with only one or two minor issues. More info here.
