In the Eventful life of John Lennon the close UFO encounter he and May Pang witnessed, is often overlooked.

The sighting, and how it perhaps influenced his later life, will never fully be understood, however any UFO encounter and especially the close one that he and May Pang experienced, was undoubtedly a life changing event for both of them.

Although reticent to inform the Media of the UFO  that he and May Pang both witnessed, he did acknowledged his sighting when his Album 'Walls and Bridges' was released.

On the bottom right of the back cover it reads "On 23 August 1974, I saw a UFO J.L.".

                                      The John Lennon/May Pang Sighting

It was just after eight o' clock on a hot summers night that John Lennon had climbed out of a window, to a private part of the roof of the apartment he had in 434 East 52nd Street, New York.

May Pang who was in the apartment heard him calling 'May come here right now'

Fearful that he was in some trouble because of his insistent calls, she rushed out to his aid, and found him nude, and pointing wildly in a southeasterly direction.

Finding John Lennon nude was not a surprise, as he was not averse to going about in this condition, but to what he was pointing at was something she would not forget for the rest of her life.

There, not more than a hundred feet away was a Classic circular, brightly lit UFO, floating silently in the sky.

As John Lennon would later recall, "I wasn’t surprised to see the UFO really, as it looked just like the spaceships we’ve all seen on the cinema growing up, but then I realised this thing was real, and so close that I could almost touch it!".

May Pang also described the event :

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 quite easily'.

Eerily the object passed by. ' We often had helicopters flying above us but this was as silent as the night and about seventeen storey's above street level.'

As they watched awestruck, 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.

John kept saying "I can't believe it... I can't believe it... I've seen a flying saucer!"

Although both May Pang and John Lennon took photographs of the craft, the roll of film once developed, was blank.

Those lost images, perhaps showing John Lennon, naked, arms outstretched, shouting at the UFO to come and take him (he did do this) would have gone down in history as an iconic turning point in ufology.

But sadly it was not to be.

John Lennon did make drawings of the craft , but these drawings have never been made public.

Perhaps one day they will, and then we will see exactly what the craft looked like, on that hot summers night in New York.

                                                      May Pangs Second New York UFO Sighting.

In the Early Eighties May Pang had another UFO sighting near Central Park, in New York

She was with her friend Mario, and this is how they related the sighting to Uforth. (Thanks to May Pang and Mario)

                                                                                 May Pangs report:

I asked May Pang if she could describe the UFO?

The shape of the UFO was like the bottom of a flat iron. With sparkling lights on the edges of the bottom, and I saw nothing of the top".

“No noise, like the other UFO I saw with John".

How long did you see it for, and, did it disappear or just move away?

"We saw it for a good 15 mins.....it hovered over The Great Lawn in Central Park (near Tavern on the Green) it then started to move slowly at an angle going towards the sky and just disappeared"

Can you approximate the distance you were from it?

"It probably was the height of a helicopter in the sky.....1500 ft".

And what was the argument you had with Mario? was it because you viewed it differently?

" Mario didn't believe it was a UFO and I made him follow the object in the sky which was not really moving. We then parked the car and we stared at it for the longest time. Mario refused to believe it was UFO....but as time passed by, Mario had no answer for this object in the sky".

"I went over to car full of people who were watching us pointing to this object. I asked them what do they see? and they didn't answer, and drove off".

Mario's Report:

May first noticed it while we were driving uptown, in the West 30's. By the time we reached Central Park West 66th, we had to get out of the car and look at it.

We saw the bottom, at an angle (we could not see the top) in the shape of an iron, with twinkling lights around the perimeter -- flashing like diamonds.

It stood still, and it wasn't very high up. No noise.

We were looking at it, and other people stopped and began looking too. Some ran off!

I didn't want to believe what I was seeing, so we began arguing over what we were seeing.

So I'm saying "it's a blimp" and she's saying, "No, it's not" and when it finally took off, straight up, very quickly, until it disappeared into the sky, I realised it was no blimp.

We both wished it had taken us. Just as she and John had wished the same thing, back in 1974.

I said to May "Another UFO -- and you're there again. It's always you.
