Husband and I made a night run to Area 51 as we are fairly new to Nevada and enjoy exploring. As we approached the extraterrestrial highway sign we pulled off to take pictures in front of it. We were both out of the vehicle made sure we were the only ones around and left the doors open. Radio was off, vehicle was running, we both had our backs to tne truck we heard was sounded like a person talking on the radio turned, looked at eachother and slowly walked back to the truck and got inside. My husband had taken a video looking outwards and can be heard saying how we were the only ones around and how creepy it was he has closed the video application and locked his phone, after we heard the noise and were back in tbe truck tbis video click on and kept replaying and his phone was being extremly difficult to unlock and stop the play back.

We decided to continue down the road in search of 'the black mailbox' we learned shortly after coming to were it wad supposed to be that it was removed, replaced and removed again. We decided to park, look out the windows and take in the amount of stars that we could see give. There was basically zero lighg polloution, unlike las veags and just watch for shooting/falling stars, after about 10 mins we decided to head back home. As we were drivinv i was watching tje road ahead and told my husband to be careful of the car a ways down the road, since tbe appeared to be stopping, out of no where about 15-20 possibly even upwards of 50 blinking red anf white lights were ahead of us. We pulled over, i began recording and captured what i could on video, after playing it back several times, i am frustrated at the lack of justice the video shows what I saw with my own eyes. The lights looked as if some were in a line, circle, and triangle patterns, there was no green light which would have made me dis them a drone or aircraft. They were also fairly large in size and traveling extermly close together also causing me to believe this was not Conventional aircraft. I am sending a video beware, given our shock and excitement, there are expletives.
