This day marks the 42nd year of the day when the very famous Beatle, John Lennon, spotted an unidentified flying object (UFO) hovering across the skies.
During the 23rd of August, 1974, John Lennon went out to the balcony to gasp some fresh air together with May Pang, his assistant back then. Unexpectedly, the two saw a flying saucer flying over the East river.
The superstar musician claims that it "turn right at the United Nations building, turn left and then down the river." The very weird and promiscuous looking flying object supports a dome shape. Mr. Lennon reiterates: "It definitely wasn't a helicopter."
The possible encounter with the third kind seemed to really be true as it had a deep impact on his life. The reference it had in his later album, Walls and Bridges, was a proof that it was indeed a true incident.
Miss Peng supports the claim saying that right after the sightings were gone, they called the police as well as the New York Daily News to report the strange incident. They were then told that there were also seven other reports claiming to have seen the UFO.
The two had successfully taken pictures, but it later turned out to be over exposed. She later wrote a book that tells her life with John Lennon. It is stated in one of the paragraphs there: "We often had helicopters flying above us but this was as silent as the night and about seventeen."
John Lennon is one of the many high-profile names who had encounters with UFOs.
Thoughts About John Lennon's UFO Sighting:
The universe is a wide expanse of uncertainty. The Earth and the rest of human civilization are just a tiny speck of dust if we were to compare it to the grandeur of the universe (literally).
With this, it is very unlikely that we humans, together with the other animals and plants on this planet, are the only life forms in this world. Let alone, Earth being the only planet that can sustain life.
There are now thousands and thousands of "earth-like" planets that have recently been discovered. This puts us on the brink of discovering new life forms, new worlds, and new civilizations, that is incomprehensibly spectacular.
It is not a matter of if aliens do exist. It is a matter of when they show themselves up for the entire world to see, and not just in individually secretive brief sightings.
