Lennon had a UFO sighting which occurred when he was with
his personal secretary, May Pang, in New York. As May
Pang recounts in her book, the "large, circular object
[was] coming towards us. It was shaped like a flattened
cone and on top was a large, brilliant red light... When
it came a little closer, we could make out a row or circle
of white lights that ran around the entire rim of the

23, 1974 - John Lennon reports seeing a UFO in NYC. Lennon's
sighting occurred when he was with his personal secretary,
May Pang, in New York, at the time when he and Yoko Ono
were separated. He refers to the experience on the cover
of his album "Walls And Bridges", which
was released in 1974, saying that he saw a UFO. May Pang
reports in her book, "Loving John"....
had just ordered up some pizzas and since it was such
a warm evening, we decided to step out on the terrace,"
recalled Pang. "There were no windows directly
facing us from across the street, so John just stepped
outside with nothing on, in order to catch a cool breeze
that was coming in right off the East River. I remember
I was just inside the bedroom getting dressed when John
started shouting for me to come out on the terrace."
yelled back that I would be right there but he kept screaming
for me to join him in that instant. As I walked out onto
the terrace, my eye caught this large, circular object
coming towards us. It was shaped like a flattened cone
and on top was a large, brilliant red light, not pulsating
as on any of the aircraft we'd see heading for a landing
at Newark Airport. When it came a little closer, we could
make out a row or circle of white lights that ran around
the entire rim of the craft - these were also flashing
on and off. There were so many of these lights that it
was dazzling to the mind. It was, I estimate, about the
size of a Lear jet and it was so close that if we had
something to throw at it, we probably would have hit it

often had helicopters flying above us but this was as
silent as the night and about seventeen storeys above
street level." The object flew off but returned
later, by which time she and Lennon had set up a telescope
through which they could view it in more detail. "The
light was so brilliant coming from the craft that no additional
details could be seen. We did take a couple of pictures
but they turned out overexposed." They also rang
a local newspaper to report the sighting and were told
at least seven other people had seen the UFO too.
even called the police, that's how excited we were, and
they told us to keep calm, that others had seen it too."
During what was left of the evening, John kept saying,
"I can't believe it... I can't believe it... I've
seen a flying saucer!"
