There is a long running mystery in the circles of UFO mythology about a 13,000 year old (possibly of alien origin) dark object floating around in Earth’s orbit. It’s been said that Nikola Tesla intercepted a signal from this thing in 1899 and that astronomers have been intercepting signals since the 1930s. There’s no doubt something is up there in orbit, but what could it possibly be? Where did it come from?
Ancient-Code.com has a list of 20 facts about the satellite. Here are a few of the most interesting ones:
1. According to monitoring agencies around the world, The Black Knight Satellite has been transmitting radio signals for over 50 years now.
16. In 1963, Gordon Cooper was launched into space. On his final orbit, he reported seeing a glowing green object in front of his capsule in the distance moving towards his Spacecraft. The Muchea tracking station, in Australia, which Cooper reported the object to, picked up this Unidentified object on Radar travelling East to West.
17. It was the Ham Radio operator who apparently decoded a series of signals received from the UFO Satellite and interpreted it as a star-chart centered on the Epsilon Bootes Star System.
The reality, according to Skeptoid, is somewhere in between. There is definitely an object in Earth’s orbit, and there were intercepted radio signals that still remain a mystery, but the object has been widely received as “probably the second casing from Discoverer VIII”.
Although some questions have been answered, there are still mysteries involving the Black Knight Satellite.
