John Lennon’s UFO Encounter

Profile Status

Not only was John Lennon the founding member of the Beatles, he was also a political free thinker, who challenged the world with his anthem “Give Peace a Chance”.

When Lennon attempted to emigrate to the United States in the early 70’s, he was considered such a revolutionary, that the United States Intelligence community put Lennon under constant surveillance.

The fact that Lennon was so famous and controversial at that time, makes his apparent UFO sighting all the stranger.

On August 23rd, 1974 Lennon walked out on to the balcony of his New York apartment, and witnessed what he later described as a “Flying Saucer” hovering closely, just above his window.

Lennon became so completely fascinated by the event, that he talked incessantly about the incident, and even included the encounter within two different songs on different albums.

May Pang descibes the UFO encounter because – as it turned out – she was right there at his side during the incident.


We had just ordered up some pizza and since it was such a warm evening, we decided to step out on the terrace. 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 onto the terrace. I yelled back that I would be right there, but he kept screaming for me to join him 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. May says she and John stood there mesmerized, unable to believe what they were in the process of observing.

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.


The couple watched the UFO move directly over the building next to where they resided.

It was, i would 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.
