To me this appears to be a much closer viewing area than the black mail box. Is this little city even still on the safe side of the border?...it looks like military installions everywhere around it. Where else would be a better viewing area other than the infamous Tipakoo Peak (spelling) and black mail box. From what i see on google eath, there are much better potential locations to view the juicy stuff.
Indian Springs, and Creech Airforce Base also look pretty interesting.
also keep in mind area51 encompasses not only just the airfield, but a much larger area.
