During a summit of 'extra-terrestrial' analysts, Shi-Li Sun, well-known UFO expert, earlier a diplomat, made a ground-breaking claim to a panel of six former members of the US Congress.

 "After years of research, a large number of Chinese UFO scholars, including myself, are convinced of the authenticity of UFOs and the existence of UFOs and aliens," Sun told the panel at The Citizen Hearing, according to The Daily Star.

"I have also written articles that have appeared in China's encyclopaedia, which is a very prestigious encyclopaedia that was edited by Shen Shituan, a famous scientist in my country. Some of these sightings are real, some are fake and with others it's unclear," he said. "All these phenomena are worth researching."

Chinese UFO expert, Dr Sun Shili, helped to begin China's UFO research body. He even lobbied to get the government to print his first UFO journals.  

With improved technology and upgraded means of recording aliens, UFO and alien sightings have shot up in recent years, said Shi-Li-Sun.

Just two days ago, HNGN reported that a couple of UFOs were spotted flying by the supermoon.

A number of objects in other planets, such as a brick wall on Mars, also seems to indicate extra-terrestrial activity.

UFO disclosure activist Stephen Bassett, of the Paradigm Research Group, had claimed before the elections that 2016 will be the year "the truth out there" is out. Earlier, with Hillary Clinton determined to reveal UFO truths, he had been convinced that the public will get to know about it. He had said: "You will see a shift in focus from the world. More transparency, more communication among countries, an age of reform."

After Clinton's defeat, the truth does not seem to be so poised to get revealed.

Did the alien world have a hand in her downfall, to prevent the truth from coming out?
