What is it? It is estimated by some to be about 13,000 years old and it orbits above our planet Earth. Some people claim there is not only one of these objects but TWO! So what are they? The one I’m referring to here is commonly known as the “Black Knight” and it’s been a “mystery” for a very long time now.
Looking at the NASA pics of it it looks almost like a black colored NASA shuttle. One problem, however, it was spotted decades before NASA came out with the shuttles. Some skeptics say it’s just space junk maybe from an old Soviet satellite. Hmmm well maybe or maybe not.
The Black Knight has been around for several decades now and it has continued to be a mystery. It has caused media interest since the 1950s and among people who investigate the strange and unusual it’s become one of the most talked about subjects there is. When first spotted it was believed to be a Soviet satellite but that theory hasn’t received much proof. Monitoring stations around the world report that this big black object has been transmitting radio signals now for over 50 years! But to whom? And to where are those signals intended?
Both the US and Russian governments have shown interest in the object designating it as an “unidentified space object” or USO. The object has even caught the attention of amateur HAM radio operators around the world. One of them claims to have decoded the signals coming from the Black Knight and says it is broadcasting a star chart, specifically, to the Epsilon Bootes Star System. And this same operator says the object is at least 13K years old! That would put the objects age in PRE-HISTORY as the normal cut off point for “History” is around 10000-12000 BCE.
Some people believe that the Black Knight was discovered long before what is claimed by the “experts.” They say famed inventor Nikola Tesla actually intercepted its signals in 1899 after he invented and built his high voltage radio device in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They say that after Tesla discovered the signals for the next 30-50 years the signal was intercepted “more frequently” by people around the world mostly HAM radio operators. They point out that since the 1930s astronomers around the planet have reported strange radio signals which they say come from this Black Knight.
In Venezuela in 1957 Dr Luis Corralos who was with the Communications Ministry photographed the object while taking pictures of the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik II as it passed over Caracas. Both Sputnik I and II, as well as other satellites, orbit from West to East but the Black Knight orbits East to West against the earth’s rotation! Satellites are normally placed into orbit moving West to East so that they can achieve a natural rotation and maintain orbit by moving the same direction the earth does.
The St Louis Dispatch and the San Francisco Examiner wrote articles about the Black Knight back in 1954 and so did Time Magazine in March of 1960. Time reported the US Defense Department had identified the object as “the remains of an Air Force Discoverer satellite that had gone astray. The problem with that identification is that the Black Knight doesn’t even look remotely similar to any of the USAF Discoverer satellites! Google it for pics.
Yet, on August 23, 1954 Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine reported that the Pentagon had identified the objects as “natural, not artificial satellites.” Notice they said objectS meaning more than one? So what were/are they? Artificial or natural? Soviet space junk or something else? Not even the Pentagon seems to know, honestly. Continue reading
