Update 6/8: This might be a rock quarry. The gates are open (implying no secrecy), and commenter Richard C has identified it as the Jobe Rock Quarry. Although the quarry is not listed in this location on Google Maps or on its official website - in fact, it should be on the opposite side of the city, this is a theory.
Most folks in the "UFO community" don't care too much about Area 51. If it ever was an actual secret alien base, one can assume it no longer is - as the cat's been out of the bag for quite a while now. So, the search for the new Area 51 continues.
And it may end in El Paso.
TUS received a Facebook message detailing a secret underground government base, run by aliens - who take their advanced air crafts for test runs and even experiment on humans. This unsettling and gigantic "leak" apparently comes from a local Facebook page - 915 on Blast - where people can post anonymously on issues ranging from missing children to restaurant reviews. This particular revelation came from a "CIA agent" using a fake Facebook account.
915 on Blast has since removed the post, but one of their fans - Danny Mariscal - took screenshots of it and kindly shared it with TUS:
Here's a transcript (doesn't include the intro from 915 on Blast):
Hello there El Paso, Texas,
There really is a secret area in this part of El Paso, though - and it is VAST! There is virtually no information anywhere on the web about it - not even on popular UFO sites - and no street view mode is available. The roads are unnamed, to boot. But here are some screenshots from my Google Maps-led tour of this area.
On the other side of the gate:
You can browse more nameless roads and buildings in the surrounding areas.
The only thing I could find on the web about this location is a YouTube video, a few months old, featuring some young adults standing right at the gates the supposed CIA operative referred to (and I was able to find on Google Maps) - too bad they won't zoom up on the gate signs!:
Could this be an extension of Fort Bliss (located on the other side of El Paso), or maybe just some private company doing private things? President Kennedy did famously visit El Paso in 1963. Perhaps he knew about this place, too!
Just because Google has "no data" for a place, does not mean aliens are living the high life there, though. Regardless I think it goes without saying:
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRESPASS AT THIS LOCATION.

I go trailing a lot in the desert I see a lot of places like this have never once been shot at
6/5/2014 02:46:07 am
I've gone out there to go shooting... If iI can recall correctly, the signs say, "private property" and "no trespassing" also that using firearms past that point is illegal... So we usually take a side road and shoot along side the fence... It seems normal enough, but it does have a "hills have eyes" type of feel to it...
6/5/2014 06:07:41 am
Lol I go shoot on the hill literally RIGHT before those gates. You ARE allowed to cross them just cant shoot in there cause its private property. I call bs.
6/5/2014 06:15:42 am
Oh yeah that pictures wrong. Thats a pic of the jobe concrete gate for the quarry. Wait..... as I type this I just remembered last month when I went to shoot, there was a random truck with a guy in it just parked at the jobe gates... o_o I tought it was odd but just kept driving.
6/6/2014 11:42:10 am
If you zoom in on the gate it says Jobe on it, if you zoom in at the quarry pic, you'll see mounts of dirt and rock with trucks hauling the material around. Come on people use common sense before posting nonsense.
6/8/2014 02:13:59 am
Do not live in El Paso so comments like yours are what this site hopes for - that is one of suggestions in article, that it could just be rock mining. But with no google map info, no way to verify!
6/8/2014 02:17:58 am
Google maps has that somewhere else but it could be wrong
6/16/2014 01:06:50 pm
Hey I live here in horizon and I've never heard of this place. It's weird since that place is just near some houses, and mountains. It could be very possible that it's a Jobe Quarry, since Jobe is not to far from here either. It's on Pelicano rode. But seems like a nice trip to go on my quads with my buddies :D
7/3/2014 08:00:55 pm
I have recently visitied this place twice what I find interesting why is the road only for a one lane car once a right is made at the stop sign I go st night and often do find it very errie just two weeeks ago their was alight in the far distance it happened too be blinking rapidly as within minutes the light dimmed and blinked at a slower pace then within seconds shut off as we had four people in the car we saw what looked like thunder clouds but it was a clear day as the sky lit up I cnt say its aliens but definitely very intriguing
2/15/2015 08:38:28 pm
Woooooooww! We saw thunderlights right now as well 0.O
7/6/2014 10:02:31 am
If you zoom in you can clearly see it is a rock crushing plant.
7/15/2014 10:33:32 am
Just yesterday me and my dad drove down to the end of horizon blvd. At the stop sign we turned left and walked to the top of a mountain my grandpa called "el tanate del diablo". A few minutes later 2 trucks drove by to load material I guess. So the Jobe place is to the left and not to the right of the stop sign
10/8/2014 12:07:12 pm
I went and saw something realy suspisios
3/24/2016 07:58:54 am
What did you see bob? Did it scare you? Or did it make you curious?
12/30/2014 01:48:18 am
People know damn well there is nothing there and still make up these conspiracy theories about a damn alien underground base. What the hell.. /.-
12/4/2015 11:49:11 pm
If you're so sure why don't you go look your self after sun down. Just get to the stop make a left and pull over immediately stare into the horizon and you will see what seems like outdoor lights of houses but some of them move and change colors I put this on my family this place made me believe.
1/21/2015 02:24:30 pm
Ok so I have heard about this "base" awhile ago but ill touch on this late because i believe me and my associates maybe on to something. We go hiking in an old artillery range site in the franklin mountains just off off Transmountain. There arr the typical US gov red and white signs. But we go hiking there anyway to find old missle cylos that are located in the mountains.(still searching this rugged terrain) there are many ridges untouched by roads. But today as we were hiking deep in the mountain range and we saw what looked to be a cooling vent deep in the side of the mountain!! It was very deep and was a square shape. When we dropped rocks we could not hear.them anything, Could there be a base in the Franklin mountains one that connects to Ft.Bliss? The Franklin mountains sit only minutes away from Ft.Bliss. (Ft.Bliss is also americas largest larmy facility in acreage) Let us not mention how much untouched land Ft.bliss has that seems untouched across the city. Back to the base.in horizon. About 2 months ago. Me and associates headed out to the hoizon spot, skip ahead the lonnng drive to get to the random stop sign. We made a right and continued to drive. As we continue down the dirt "road" there comes a point where the sign of a fenced in enclosure becomes more evident. We had the "quary" in our sights when out of no where down the dirt road (which becomes curved at the end leading into the interior of the site) a truck turns on its lights and hauls ass towards us. We attempted to move but they were rite on us. (Btw i felt we were being watched the whole time) the truck pulled upin front of us. Ill say black F150 but im unsure due to the brights and fog lights on the truck. Out from the truck 2 white males(an alert for me because usually most white males in EP are military) in sunglasses and hats (its 2ish AM) approach our vehicle leaving about 5 ft of space betweem them and the vehicle. They signal to roll the windows down while holding there holsters. They shout at the same time "Leave now " The other to the left says "this is private property we will escort you off" the other one says "if you comeback you guys will be shot." At that point we did as they said and left the same way we came they left us shortly before getting to horizon blvd. Scary and very fuckin weird. Havent been back since but before I went in the skies estimated over that area and far east EP I have seen strange lights what I believe to be UFOs. Well thats all my crazy strange weird info EP I hope others join me in exploring more of the franklin mountains. (Many mountains ridges!) Im not going back to that spot ever again. But i would be interested if we could go in a team of cars. Till then keep exploring the.unknown!! (Typed from phone did zero spellchecks)
5/31/2015 06:26:19 am
Yo my friends and I are down to go on an adventure back then. We want to go explore all this.
7/2/2015 06:07:47 pm
Dang bro I want to go out there with my friends
2/21/2015 06:15:59 am
Did anyone see a UFO near artkraft road around 8:30 pm on 2/18/15
12/4/2015 11:42:20 pm
For all you people saying there's nothing down horizon blvd I dare you to go look in the evening after sun down. Once you reach the stop make a left turn, pull over and stare into the distance. I have seen hovering lights that change color almost like a remote controlled helicopter is hovering above the sand in the distance I have experienced this mad scary feeling out of nowhere like you're being watched by something malicious. My mom saw trucks go down the road make a left where it ends and start hovering up the mountain as if the trucks transform into space ships she claims these trucks had very bright lights. Her friend that introduced us to this area says there is in fact a government base when you make a right turn and go down. Please go look if you don't believe in other life forms because this will open your eyes
1/5/2016 05:42:18 pm
I am going to go there tonight I'm not afraid about the people there I hold a fourth degree black belt I also had three other black belts another category and I am NOT scared I'm going to go over there and see what's going on I will give you an update after tonight anybody threaten me they're getting an ass whippin
2/5/2016 03:09:14 pm
Well???? Did you make it back? If you survived, then please leave an update, so nobody goes looking for you. Curious in California.
3/21/2016 02:02:32 am
I used to live in horizon and always thought something was weird about that place. I've never heard about this base but interestingly enough there is also a Lockheed martin facility located there (if your not familiar they are an American global aerospace, defense, security and advanced technologies company...) I have seen some weird lights in the skies often in that area. Doesn't seem too farfetched to think there's a secret base in the area especially considering its proximity to one of the US largest military base, Ft. Bliss.... OK while writing this I was trying to remember anything unusual that I witnessed while living there and it hit me, almostvlike a repressed memory. I once saw something that I could only describe as alien in the sense that I have no idea what it was. Long story short, i was in my backyard at night and I saw this red light out on the emerald springs golfcourse behind my parents backyard that looked like a creature that had a red glow, almost like ETs heart in the Steven Spielberg movie, it ran towards my neighbors back yard , jumped over 4ft of cactus landscape onto the dividing wall of our neighbors and our backyard. I have no clue what it was but it was smaller than a human and I remember that red glow. I swear that thing was looking at me perched on the wall, after my initial confusion turned to shock and then fear, I ran my ass back inside and told my parents. Which of course they didn't believe. All these weird things might be connected to each other? Idk but Writing this gave me goosebumps...
3/24/2016 07:56:44 am
Yeah... I don't think the black belt made it back.

Just came back from there (again) at the stop sign we turned left and parked looked northwest and there was a blinking light then looked south down the road there was a red glowing object in the middle of the road close to the ground which would disappear and re appear on the side of the road , inevitable feeling of terror came over me out of nowhere and then ceased. Heard a few growls coming from the north side. Going back down the dirt road we kept seeing a light following us coming from where the stop sign is located and even over some hills and slight curves it would always be on the middle of the road like it was following us. The few times we stopped to see it better it would slightly move. We turned around again heading back towards the stop sign because we couldnt believe what we were seeing but it was as if the lights were keeping their distance and the more we drove back the farther east they would go. I have video of it anyone wanting to see it I can show you proof Email me email@example.com
10/4/2017 05:48:54 am
Listen guys I'm not trying to get anything out of this small encounter I had one time but I have never in my life...46 years seen what I saw one evening close to that area, I was waiting for my wife to finish using the bathroom at a Sonic restaurant and you know how they have there restroom facility on the side of the building,well it was about 10pm when I'm standing with my foot up on the wall waiting for Stella..my wife..I for some reason looked up at the light poles that were lighting up the dark area on the side of that building when suddenly I noticed one of the lights didn't have a pole supporting iit so I got really curious and I decided to walk up to the lights well toward that particular light as I got closer to it I want to say about ten feet away from it the light that was supposed to be a light post light came towards me and got bigger as it did it scared the shit out of me and I ran back toward the restroom and started ponding on the door eeeeeeh I was scared. Luckily my wife was done using the bathroom at this time so she opened the door right away .as she did I turned to look at the light coming towards me and I yelled do you see it!! What the f... Is that?!! The light seems to have stopped about 12 feet above the ground and got very bright and was just still for like 10seconds and then started to back towards the darkness at a very slow pace.what was it and why was it hiding amonsr the light poles? True stroy I put it on my kids,!!....any body ever see anything like that before???? P.s. like I said this was no joke..
10/15/2017 03:27:59 am
Wow! I've been in El Paso for the past 9 years (military). I've never experienced anything like that before, but I'm curious which Sonic were you at? Have you gone back?
1/3/2019 03:12:41 am
Email me asap plz?????
11/13/2019 02:57:49 pm
