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.
