Anyone who has watched a bit of television will no doubt have heard of Area 51. A top secret military base in the United States rumoured to have captured UFOs and home of top-secret high speed aircraft. Even more secret is the so called STATION 13 that was situated near Babsfontein between Johannesburg and Pretoria during the 1960s to mid 1980s. Despite an intensive search on the Internet and in literature covering space activities in South Africa during that period, there is no specific mention of this station.
