The truth is out there, as far as the Vegas Golden Knights are concerned.

Ahead of a highly anticipated storming of Area 51 in Nevada on Friday, Vegas players and coaches offered their thoughts to the Las Vegas Sun's Justin Emerson on whether aliens exist and the likelihood of aliens - dead or alive - being held at the top-secret facility.

The comments came following a practice session at which fans were encouraged to dress up in alien costumes.

Some Golden Knights were convinced of a paranormal presence, whether it be real or otherwise.

Others weren't so sure.

About 3,000 people showed up to Area 51 to "see them aliens" Friday after 2 million people pledged in a Facebook event page to storm the site, according to CNN's Doug Criss, Christina Maxouris, and Nick Watt. The crowd ultimately opted not to rush the facility after being informed of the consequences.
