In 1974, former Beatle John Lennon claimed to have seen a UFO in New York City. He was living in an apartment in Manhattan with girlfriend May Pang when he saw the flying saucer.
It wasn’t just a light in the sky and there were other witnesses. This sighting was up-close, of a huge craft, and it happened right outside Lennon’s 52nd Street apartment. He wasn’t afraid to talk about it and, in fact, he famously wrote about it in a song. This was Nobody Told Me and, as Lennon sang it, “There’s UFOs over New York and I ain’t too surprised… Nobody told me there’d be days like these. Strange days indeed.”
The sighting occurred when he was living with May Pang, his so-called “personal secretary” who’d turned into a lover during Lennon’s separation from Yoko Ono. It was a hot August night, August 23, 1974, when John Lennon walked out on his balcony facing the East River to catch a cool breeze. He was completely naked. He started yelling at Pang to come out to the terrace.
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.” The sighting lasted from five to ten minutes, and the UFO drifted away and came back before sprinting off into the sky. Apparently, Lennon and Pang weren’t the only ones to see the UFO, multiple other witnesses (at least seven) had called city newspapers. You can read more details in this article by Larry Warren, link at bottom. And you can hear Lennon himself describe it in this radio interview,video at bottom of story.
In the standards of 1974, John Lennon was not a “good” witness. But Lennon was never shy about speaking his mind, even about UFOs. His courage makes it easier for other witnesses even today. Bottom line: John Lennon and May Pang claimed to have seen something approximating a “classic” UFO, hovering outside their apartment in New York, something that was the size of a private jet aircraft, from only a hundred yards away, so close they felt they could almost touch it.
Given Lennon’s reputation for brutal honesty, one has think that some fans who did not give much credence to UFO sightings have had to stop and re-consider their positions. You can bet that if John Lennon actually just celebrated his 70th birthday, he would have had a lot more to say on this subject over these last three decades. Just gimme some truth, he’d have demanded. Imagine.

May recalls how John sounded “panic-stricken” as he screamed, “Now, Fung Yee. Now!” May immediately ran outside beside John to ask him what was the matter. Lennon pointed to the sky, “Look up there. Tell me what you see.”
May couldn’t believe her eyes. She described what she saw as “a saucer shaped object surrounded by blinking white lights gliding through the sky”, she was “astonished”. It was difficult for her to believe what she was actually seeing, yet still, she was convinced she was witnessing a UFO! She then began to laugh.
John questioned her laughter, and because they were both naked, she humorously replied, “Suppose it’s looking at us. Maybe they think that everyone who lives on the East Side wanders around naked on their balconies on Friday evenings. We look like Adam and Eve.” They went back inside to get a telescope to further study the UFO.

What is particularly notable about this account is that May then refers to John describing the UFO as a “spaceship”… so there’s little doubt that neither May nor John thought they might have mistaken an aircraft, weather balloon or whatever as a UFO. John incorporated the UFO incident on the artwork of ‘Walls and Bridges’. On the bottom right (of the back cover) is written: “On 23 August 1974, I saw a UFO. J.L.”

John incorporated the UFO incident on the artwork on his album ‘Walls and Bridges’. On the bottom right (of the back cover) is written:
“On 23 August 1974, I saw a UFO J.L.”
Lennon also mentions UFO encounters on two of his albums.
From the ‘Double Fantasy’ album:
Track – Nobody Told Me
“There’s UFO’s over New York, and I ain’t too surprised,
Nobody told me there’d be days like these,
Strange days indeed.”
And from Lennon’s ‘Mind Games’ album:
Track – Out of the Blue
John Lennon witnessed a UFO close encounter outside his apartment in New York. This is a radio interview where he describes his experience.
He also had direct contact with an intelligent species after this encounter that gave him an unusual metal egg.
He apparently passed the egg on to his good friend Uri Geller.

Ashahed Muhammad, The Final Call (FCN): Mr. Maussan, I want to ask you a question about the sounds. That was really captivating; the sounds of the UFOs, or The Wheels. Could you just tell us a little bit more about that?
Jaime Maussan (JM): Since 2011, we have been hearing these kind of sounds; and they haven’t stopped—everywhere in the world! I think they are, somehow, announcing that they are coming—they are [makes a knocking sound with hands] “knocking at our door.” That’s what I think, because they continue. But I believe it’s very important! It’s exactly like the crop circles, which are—that’s for the eyes, and this [the sounds] is for our ears. They’re both for the brain! But they are trying to connect to us; that’s what I think.
FCN: Now it sounded kind of like an “air raid,” sort of. What are the people hearing this describing? The people who say that they’ve heard these sounds? What do they feel? Do they feel scared?
JM: No, they feel—they feel impressed; they feel impressed, like, ‘What is this? What is this?’—they feel nervous. Not as scared, not as scared, but nervous? Yes. Because, when you don’t know where that is coming from, you have to be nervous. That is all. But I think it’s a connection. Something is going to happen, soon. Sooner than later.
FCN: Now my last question: Since 2011 when you were with us in Chicago, have there been any new developments? Has anything changed, has anything happened that we can update the readers and listeners with?
|Are aliens ready to lift their veil of concealment|
JM: It’s so much! I mean, we would be scared if we knew how many are there, outside, watching us. And I think the new equipment— and I tell Minister Farrakhan— that I recommend to get this equipment, and be watching constantly! Because he is going to have the answers he is looking for—very soon!
(*Mr. Maussan is referring to infrared and night vision military grade goggles and scopes which were on display and available for purchase during the conference.)
FC: All right.
JM: Okay? Tell him: I really like him, and my blessings to him! Okay?
FC: Thank you. I will.
