It’s one of the most (in)famous places in U.S. history, and these clips will probably be the last aerial drone footage ever recorded of Area 51.

As Inverse reports, Hans Faulkner went to the Nevada desert in August 2015 to take some footage of the super-secret government base, which, as we all know, is probably where Uncle Sam is hiding the UFO from the Roswell crash. Faulkner took the footage, which was filmed in the brief period before the government posted signs disallowing drones in the area, as part of a documentary project he’s working on about possible alien aircraft. So, put simply, this will be the last time anyone can legally get footage of the area.

Essentially, Faulkner got as close as you can, legally, then flew the drone up to get a peek at the site from the distance. Sadly, no UFOs (or UFO-based aircraft) were zipping around at the time, though it’s still a nice reminder of just how hard the government works to keep this site a secret. As Faulkner notes, it’s nestled between the mountains and “perfectly hidden.” If you didn’t know it was there, you’d probably never find it.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:
