Here's Why 2016 Might Be the UFO Disclosure Year

Updated on February 27, 2018

UFO disclosure is about an evolution of consciousness, not little green men.

After the holiday decorations are taken down and the champagne headache has worn off, it's natural to wonder: what will the new year bring?

Will it be a good year? Will it be an eventful year? Or is it just another step towards the inevitable?

Whatever the case may be, we're all hoping for something. Some want to meet their soulmate in the new year. Some are hoping to expand their family. Some are stockpiling food and water in anticipation of the Apocalypse. UFO enthusiasts are waiting for the Disclosure.


UFO files Disclosure (a.k.a. the big "D") is the holy grail of the UFO community, and although there are some doubts whether the world is ready for it, or whether it's a good idea at all, it may happen sooner than we think.

Here are a few notable reasons why 2016 might be the Disclosure year.

2016 Is the U.S. Presidential Election Year

In light of her recent statements to the Conway Daily Sun, many UFOlogists are asking the question: Could Hillary Clinton be the Disclosure president?

Admittedly, Clinton isn't the most trustworthy candidate, and as some suggest, this could be a ploy to divert attention from her scandals or to win votes. But on the other hand, since when is the UFO issue a favorable topic to discuss? This is a big political risk, and someone like Hillary Clinton wouldn't be taking uncalculated risks.

On the contrary, raising the UFO question and promising "to get to the bottom of it" is a rather bold move towards the Disclosure. As Stephen Bassett, a leading advocate for the UFO Disclosure, said in 2015:

“Hillary Clinton is not going to become the president of the United States without going through the extraterrestrial issue."

Paul Hellyer: “USA is in grave danger.”

And the time for it couldn't be more ripe.

In his recent YouTube video Paul Hellyer, the former defense minister of Canada, said that the next U.S. election could be "the point of no return" and urged the American people to elect a new administration that will disclose the ET presence.

In the past "the truth is out there" issue has been raised during the presidential elections, but never with any degree of commitment. For example, we all remember Dennis Kucinich recalling his UFO sighting, or Newt Gingrich promising to build a permanent base on the moon. Less notably, when asked, Barack Obama said that he did not know if there was life out there. Well, at least he's an agnostic.

The 2016 presidential election may be different. “I think we may have been visited already. We don’t know for sure,” said Clinton. This is an unprecedented statement from a presidential candidate, and as Stephen Bassett said, a "significant historical moment."

1991 VG: Extraterrestrial Probe?

"In 2016 the scientific community will be watching closely as 1991 VG once again makes a close approach to earth for an answer as to what 1991 VG really is." -- Clifford Stone

1991 VG is an object orbiting the earth since 1947. It was discovered in 1991 and since then sparked a lot of speculation about its nature and origin.

NASA officially listed it as an asteroid, but it does have peculiar characteristics for an asteroid. According to Clifford Stone and a number of other researchers, there is a possibility that it's an extraterrestrial probe from another solar system, and at the end of 2016 it will be at its closest to earth.

"I am banking on we will find that 1991 VG is truly an extraterrestrial probe and a test for all humanity will begin," said Stone.

It remains to be seen whether or not the object is extraterrestrial, but the possibility should not be dismissed.

The British X-Files Disclosure

UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) classified UFO files are to be released to the National Archives by March 2016.

This is a culmination of an 8-year effort to release the entire British UFO archive - over 60,000 documents. The final 2016 disclosure will focus on 18 real life X-files, including the Rendlesham Forest incident.

The incident, also known as "Britain's Roswell," is one of the best documented UFO encounters in military history of any country.

It occurred in 1980 when two USAF servicemen, John Burroughs and James Penniston, spotted a glowing triangular craft landing in a nearby forest. Sgt. Penniston got close enough to see hieroglyphic symbols on the surface of the craft and to touch it, and claims to have telepathically received a binary code from contact.

What I once believed is no more, and what I’ve witnessed, defies all that I have ever imagined,” said Penniston in an interview with ABC Television (2005).

When the data was decoded many years later, it was found to contain, among other things, the words "EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY", “FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE”, and the date(?) 8100.

Nick Pope, a former Directorate of Defence Security at MoD and the public face of the disclosure program, had seen first-hand the importance of these files. He said:

"Rendlesham might be the turning point in history that leads to the explanation of the UFO phenomenon."

Why are these files being released? Why now? And what happens next? We will soon have the answers.

"Will that [2016] be the year in which man’s quest for an answer as to, are we alone in the universe be answered? Will that be the year in which finally disclosure will become a reality? Only time will tell." -- Sgt. Clifford Stone.

2016 may be the UFO Disclosure year, it may not be.

But we can't deny that there is a gradual but fairly conspicuous effort towards the Disclosure, and that's a positive development.

And to those who are skeptical: at the very least, we have to wonder about the nature of unexplained phenomena and remain open-minded. Because if we never really look into the unknown, we will never discover anything new, of lift the veil that separates perception from reality.

      I do not think we will have any sort of disclosure in my lifetime. Every year, we hear the same thing, but nothing happens. It is a shame because I truly believe that if some of these UFOS are ET, and the governments know, then it is disgusting that they are holding back on this, because it could benefit all of us.

      Hi. I am one of those who was not sure whether we were alone or not. After my experience I know we are not alone. I have seen with my own eyes a massive craft and I have been left feeling quite scared. I saw it two years ago and it is only now that I feel that I can talk about it online. I live next to Warton Bae in Lancashire and used to seeing jets and strange orange balls but this was a massive craft. Not sure if this is the year for disclosure but many influential people are asking for disclosure now. Enjoyed reading your hub . Thanks

      Thank you for your comment, Aquarius! I agree with many of your points, but I have a more optimistic perhaps outlook on disclosure. I did do my research and I do agree that there is a covert alien agenda, but I think in a sense it's irrelevant. The reason I advocate for disclosure (which is already happening, you're right) is that I believe that the fact that we're not alone in the universe, that fact alone will create a massive shift in consciousness and jump-start the human spiritual evolution.

      I have followed this UFO Phenomenon since I was a kid, now I'm 54. They are already here. They have underground bases in many places in the world. they live under our seas and also have had secret deals with our government since the Eisenhower administration. Abductions are going on all the time as well as sightings. Watch Project Camelot interviews from Government and other whistle blower testimonies, many of whom get killed or go missing after they tell their stories. I do not believe disclosure would be positive. Only because of the Alien agenda. There is so much out there now.....they really have disclosed it if you really pay attention. There is no good that will come of this and connecting with them. There are good races out there from other worlds, but not the ones that watch us and live in secret among us and do what they will with us. Do some digging and research, it is really all out there in the public domain. The powers that be just keep blowing it off, but they put some of it out there. Many movies are actually based on fact and true events. Peace be with us all and the evolution of your planet. But be careful of who you trust if and when it ever does fully come out into then open.

      It would be nice if 2016 turns out to be the year of Disclosure because we have been teased with that idea so many times. However, over the past few months, we have seen two U.S. entities releasing more information on UFOs/aliens. These include the National Security Agency NSA ( with the files at and more of the FBI"s The Vault at With that said, I do believe disclosure is already happening this year. It must be noted, however, that many of these files have been so blacked out by the powers that be, that they are pretty much unreadable.

      Well...that's an interesting proposition, Mel! I didn't consider Trump at all. Trump might be crazy enough to be the disclosure president, but he's also crazy enough to build a dome over the United States, we all know how he feels about illegal aliens! :)

      My champagne headache still hasn't worn off. In fact, the only cure may be a little more champagne - you know, hair of the dog. Anyway, assuming Hilary wins, I absolutely am certain that she won't be the disclosure president, because she's a body snatcher herself and is completely controlled by an alien consciousness, which is all the corporate bigwigs who want to maintain the status quo. Perish the thought, but I think the only candidate who might be crazy enough to do it is Donald Trump. He would revel in the glow of the publicity and enjoy sticking it to the Republican establishment. That said, I would never vote for him, but he just might be the guy if he wins. Excellent hub, let's see what these British documents reveal.

      Thanks Larry! I think all this information is slowly coming out, that's why some people say that the disclosure already happened... I don't think so, but there's progress, for sure.

      Actually, the strange events from the heavens was predicted by the Bible as one of the sign of the end of days. It is fascinating that a document written thousands of years ago have so many predictions come true in modern times. Checkout Revelations and you will be amazed.

      This is such a fascinating subject, Jodah. From looking at many ancient artifacts from all over the world, I've concluded that we indeed have been visited, and are still being watched very closely, albeit clandestinely.

      Even if not in 2016, some time soon we will have the public disclosure of these facts, and it will change everything, I believe. It will change our outlook on religion, psychology, history, physics, ecology... It will change the status quo. I just hope that it happens before it's too late.

      Very very interesting. I can't wait to see what / if anything is revealed this year 2016. If the binary code from Rendlesham Forest incident " "EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY", “FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE”, and the date(?) 8100." shows that ETs travelled back in time to explore humanity on Earth, it is likely they visited many times in the more distant past when humans were more open to the unknown, often seeing them as Gods or spirits. Many of our native ancestors have similar cave paintings of what look like extra terrestrials or astronauts. Food for thought.

      Hi Jack! You're making a valid point. While we don't have all the answers, we can certainly speculate why extraterrestrial civilizations might be reluctant to make an open contact with us. Just look at us! How primitive, stupid and violent we are...How unevolved in almost every single way...It may not be entirely our fault but that's a topic for another discussion.

      As for SETI, I don't believe that sending radio signals into space will ever render any kind of results. It's such primitive technology. It's like trying to catch an airplane with a butterfly net.

      Have you heard of Fermi's Paradox? If the universe is teaming with life, where are they? why are they hiding? What has SETI achieved in 50 years? If alien life exists, it shouldn't be so hard to find them. Just thinking out loud.

      Thank you Bill! I hope so too - that it'll happen in our lifetime. In fact, this year :) Although more conservative estimates are: 2025-2030. They say humans are just not ready yet to accept that they're not the greatest! We're truly a delusional species.

      I have always hoped that the answer to the ultimate question would be answered in my lifetime. It really is one of the great mysteries of mankind. Are we alone in the universe? Personally, I think not. I just hope I am here to bear witness to it. Great job Lana.

      Fascinating! I've always watched the shows about UFO's, but still not entirely convinced of their existence. But I still have some doubt which opens the imagination...

      I'm sure there will be all the emotions you've mentioned, and more...I don't believe there'll be panic, but great shock, no doubt. But that's OK. I'm convinced that the people en masse are ready and can handle the disclosure, should it occur in the near future. So fingers crossed :)

      Now that would be cool for sure. I wonder how people would react to that disclosure? Probably not well at all...panic? Fear? Wonder? Excitement? As you say, stay tuned!
