The Black Knight Satellite

The black knight satellite has been an exciting lure for alien researchers for decades, but is it really an extraterrestrial object?

The Black Knight Satellite

Is it really just space junk or a 13,000-year-old satellite? Then...is it the proof of extraterrestrial life?, not only life but intelligent life?, Orbiting the earth and confusing scientists of the past and present. Some, like inventor and scientist Nicola Tesla, who claim to have received radio signals from the "Black knight." Gordon Cooper, an astronaut, was adamant that, in 1963, he saw it from his own spacecraft.

Lots of people believe the theory of aliens life, they believe that aliens visited Earth thousands of years ago and used to communicate with humanity, sounds crazy?

First sighting:
In 1954 the New York Times ran an article saying that Dr. Lincoln LePaz had discovered two satellites orbiting the Earth in 1954, The reason this is the news?, In 1959 no country had managed to launch any satellite yet, Whatever LePaz saw, was enough to worry the Pentagon for a while that Russians might have beaten America into space, Later LePaz said that he made it all up, while the army said that there is no such satellite existed. Still, many people believe the satellite still there-and it was made by aliens.


The Tesla Connection:

Nicola Tesla’s inventions changed the way we live today, He was ahead of his generation. In 1899 he made his controversial discovery when he claimed that he received electric signals from extraterrestrials, Tesla even published an article for the collier's weekly by the title "Talking with the planets" when he theorized that the signal was from mars.

However, researchers now believe the signals Tesla received likely came from the Black Knight.

Next Communication:

In 1927, a Norwegian engineer named Jorgen Hals was listening to radio signals when he notices some of them had a strange echo. Despite turning to other physicists, Hals could never explain "these-delayed radio echos,"but some believe the answer is pretty obvious..."ALIENS."

The Message Of Epsilon Boötis:

In the 1970s, "Duncan Lunan," a science fiction author, took those radio echoes. "Jorgen Hals" discovered in the 1920s and mapped them against constellations and concluded that the signals from the star Epsilon Boötis, and claimed that the decoded message said this: “Our home is Epsilon Boötis, which is a double star. We live on the sixth planet of seven—check that, the sixth of seven—counting outwards from the sun, which is the larger of the two stars. Our sixth planet has one moon. Our fourth planet has three. Our first and third planet each have one. Our probe is in the orbit of your moon”.

Lunan later withdraw his claims, But theorists believed the mention of inquiry orbiting the moon was actually talking about the black knight orbiting the Earth.

History of the Black Knight:

In the 1930s, there were still some reports of astronomers receiving strange radio signals.

The "St. Louis Dispatch" ran an article in 1954 by the title, “Artificial Satellites Are Circling Earth, Writer on ‘Saucers’ says.” The writer was Donald E. Keyhoe. He wrote about unidentified satellites orbiting the planet Earth. Donald claimed that the government knew about those satellites and was trying to discover where they came from.

Keyhoe wrote a book afterward, which was named “Aliens in Space: The Real Story of Unidentified Flying Objects.” In the book, he documented his knowledge of UFOs, including what he knew about the "Black Knight."

Scientists reported seeing the satellite as it orbited the Earth. A professor at the University of New Mexico in 1953 saw a strange blip. Dr. Luis Corralos in 1957, was taking pictures of the Sputnik II, a Russian satellite, as it passed over Caracas. Strangely, the Black Knight appeared in his photographs. This was the first actual picture of the satellite.

In 1960, an American satellite showed the Black Knight following Sputnik 1, which was still orbiting the Earth. It was in a polar orbit. At that time, neither the Russians nor the U.S was capable of putting a satellite in that orbit. The UFO also appeared to be much larger and heavier than anything either country could launch.

In the 1960's, TIME magazine and some other notorious magazines reported on the Black Knight and referred to it having an unknown origin. Some Ham operators in North America had detected signals coming from the UFO. Some people reported receiving encoded messages. On September 3, 1960, the Black Knight satellite showed up on the radar for the first time ever. People on the ground could see it for about two weeks with bare eyes. The government established a committee to investigate the incident, but no report was made public.

In 1963, Gordon Cooper, an astronaut, was orbiting the Earth and he said he saw a strange “glowing green light” in front of his space capsule. A tracking station in Australia reported seeing the object on radar at the same time. The evening news reported on Cooper’s strange sighting, and for the first time, the UFO was referred to as the “Black Knight Satellite.” The name stuck for years to come, but Cooper’s report didn't.

NASA debunked Cooper’s UFO sighting in the upcoming days. They claimed there had been a malfunction in the space capsule, which caused gases to emit which appeared as “glowing light.” The result, said NASA, was that Cooper experienced a hallucination and there was no UFO. Cooper later confirmed that he had actually seen a UFO and did not hallucinate in his 1963 space orbit; he also added that NASA prohibited him from discussing it. Until his death in 2004, Cooper held on his claims that he did not have any "hallucination" in the spacecraft, but saw an actual UFO. He insisted during his lifetime about his belief in the existence of extraterrestrial life. He expressed frustration over the fact that the U.S. government continued to cover up evidence of extraterrestrial contacts.

In 1998, astronauts from the spacecraft Endeavor took photographs of the orbiting object. NASA  disagreed with the astronauts again and claimed that the photographed object was not a UFO, but instead, just space junk, perhaps a thermal blanket.
