SOME of the world's top film, pop and sporting stars are spaced out on UFOs, a new book has revealed.
Even former American president Richard Nixon admits he has had a Close Encounter.
And John Lennon was once "buzzed" by a flying saucer on the balcony of his New York apartment. Assistant May Pang, who saw it too, said: "It looked like a flattened cone with a brilliant light on top."
Singer David Bowie, who starred as "The Man Who Fell To Earth," saw so many UFOs when he was a kid that he produced a magazine about them. He said: "They came over so regularly we could time them. Sometimes they stood still, other times they moved so fast it was hard to keep a steady eye on them."
Former boxing champion Muhammad Ali has seen sixteen different UFOs. "If you look into the sky in the early morning you see them playing tag between the stars," he said.
Star Trek actor William Shatner is also a believer. He told Timothy Green Beckley, author of "UFOs Among the Stars," how a ghostly motorcyclist led him to safety after his own bike crashed in America's Mojave Desert. When weary Shatner finally reached civilisation, he spotted an "object glistening in the heavens" as his mysterious guide suddenly disappeared.
