Area 51 security satellites

After doing alot of reading here on some very interesting subjects, here is my first post.

I have seen alot of posts about all the security at the area 51 installation. Unless I missed it, (if it has been discussed before I hope someone will provide a link)nobody has mentioned the "eyes in the sky" that provide security of the installation and the surrounding area.

Yes, they are up there, the several million dollars worth of "spy" satellites. There is at least one assigned specifically to the installation in case all else fails.

Anyone else ever heard of this?
