The drawing seems to detail New York alien encounter...

In Lennon’s song, Nobody Told Me, he appears to refer to the incident with the lyric “There’s a UFO over New York and I ain’t too surprised”
A rare sketch said to have been drawn by John Lennon appears to record an alien encounter the former Beatle experienced in America.
Russ Kellett, is known for investigating the 1974 UFO Berwyn Mountains incident in North Wales, involving theories of an extraterrestrial craft crashing in the area.
A few months ago he bought the sketch, supposedly by Lennon, reports the Daily Post.
It seems to detail an encounter the musician had with a flying saucer in New York - the same year as the North Wales incident.
Lennon, whose first wife Cynthia died earlier this year and once lived in Ruthin, was said to have made a number of drawings following the sighting.
He claimed he was standing on the balcony of his apartment on August 23 1974, with former girlfriend May Pang.
The pair claimed to have seen a flying saucer hovering silently over them.
Mr Kellett, an avid collector of UFO material and a Beatles fan, said when he was the chance to acquire the sketch, he jumped at the opportunity.
He said: “A friend of mine told me it was becoming available from a private collector and I thought, this was a double dream for me.
“I am a massive collector of all things UFO and have a huge archive and am a collector of Beatles memorabilia.
“I have a leather jacket worn by John Lennon in 1969 up until 1974. So this was fantastic.
“It is one of a few he made he made of the incident.
