The original method of getting the aliens to show goes like this:
1. Open your storage folder in extras and delete the time zones storage
soup. This will delete any cities you have added, so don't do this unless
you haven't added any cities.
2. Open your Time Zones app, and tap in the area of Arizona/California. You
should see a city pop up called Area 51.
3. Choose it, so it shows up down below, and close the TZ app. Now, when
you open your dates, you should see the aliens. Have fun.
