In 1974, John Lennon, one of the greatest musicians and peace activists in history, claimed to have seen a UFO hovering over New York City.
At this time he was actually living in an apartment in Manhattan with his girlfriend at the time, May Pang, when they saw a mysterious flying object in the sky that obviously was “unidentifiable”.
He explains to the camera that the UFO was so close he could literally have thrown a stone at it.
This video contains very rare footage of Lennon talking about this sighting and also an interview about it and the significance it held in his mind;
