Mysterious Radio Signals Detected from Ancient Satellite Orbiting Earth

By February 25, 2017 Rabbit Hole

The Black Knight satellite has caused major media interest since the late 1950’s, and it has become one of the most talked about objects in space. First thought to be a Russian spy satellite, the Black Knight has gripped the interest of millions worldwide.

Beginning in the mid-fifties (though some reports claim the 1940’s and certain weird rumors assert that Nikola Tesla discovered something strange back in the 19th century) a curious phenomenon manifested itself in the heart and minds of population’s budding fascination with Unidentified Flying Objects the discovery of an unknown satellite in Polar Orbit, possibly broadcasting something to unknown agencies allegedly before humans had the technology to accomplish such a feat.

Needless to say, with the Cold War raging accusations and suspicions abounded.

According to TIME magazine on Monday, March 7, 1960:

“Three weeks ago, headlines announced that the U.S. had detected a mysterious “dark” satellite wheeling overhead on a regular orbit. There was nervous speculation that it might be a surveillance satellite launched by the Russians, and it brought the uneasy sensation that the U.S. did not know what was going on over its own head. But last week the Department of Defense proudly announced that the satellite had been identified. It was a space derelict, the remains of an Air Force Discoverer satellite that had gone astray.”

In 1954 both the St. Louis Dispatch and San Francisco Examiner raised the question of whether or not there was something up there six years before the first successful launch of a Polar Orbit Satellite.

Then on August 23, 1954, the magazine Aviation Week and Space Technology wrote:

“Pentagon scare over the observance of two previously unobserved satellites orbiting the earth has dissipated with the identification of the objects as natural, not artificial satellites. Dr. Lincoln LaPaz, an expert on extraterrestrial bodies from the University of New Mexico, headed the identification project. One satellite is orbiting about 400 miles out, while the other track is 600 miles from the earth. Pentagon thought momentarily the Russians had beaten the U.S. to space explorations.”

For the more Conspiracy Version ancient-code.com has come to the rescue, according to the site:

Interest in the Black Knight was higher each year, in 1957, an unknown “object” was seen “shadowing”  the Sputnik 1 Spacecraft. According to reports, the “unidentified object” was in Polar orbit, at that time The United Stated nor the Russians possessed the technology to maintain a spacecraft in Polar Orbit.  According to our research, the first Polar-orbiting satellite was launched in 1960. Polar orbits are often used for earth-mapping, earth observation, capturing the earth as time passes from one point and reconnaissance satellites. This would put the Black Knight in the category of an observational Satellite, the only question here is, who placed The Black Knight in a polar orbit and for what purpose?

The Object continued to amaze Astronomers World Wide. In the 1960’s the Black Knight was located once again in Polar Orbit. Astronomers and Scientists calculated the object’s weight to be over 10 tons which would be at that time the Heaviest Artificial Satellite to orbit our Planet. The Black Knight’s orbit was unlike any other object orbiting Earth, as it was moving twice as fast when compared to any other man-made Spacecraft’s.

There are also several reports that the Grumman Aircraft Corporation gave much importance to this mysterious “Satellite”, On September 3, 1960, seven months after the satellite was first detected by radar, a tracking camera at Grumman Aircraft Corporation’s Long Island factory took a photograph of the Black Knight. At that point, people all over the world started identifying the object in the sky, which could be seen as a red light moving at higher speed compared to other satellites in an East to West orbit. The Grumman Aircraft Corporation formed a committee to study the data received from the observations made but nothing was made public.

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 traveling East to West. NBC reported this but after Cooper returned to Earth, the Reporter was not allowed to ask Cooper about the unidentified object. The official explanation given to Coopers sighting were “high levels of carbon dioxide, which caused hallucinations.”

But if you were looking for the more official story:

The satellite mystery originated in 1954 when newspapers including the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the San Francisco Examiner ran stories attributed to retired naval aviation major and UFO researcher Donald Keyhoe saying that the US Air Force had reported that two satellites orbiting Earth had been detected. At this time no one had the technology to launch a satellite[2]

In February 1960 there was a further report that the US Navy had detected a dark, tumbling object in an orbit inclined at 79° from the equator with an orbital period of 104.5 minutes. Its orbit was also highly eccentric with an apogee of 1,728 km (1,074 mi) and a perigee of only 216 km (134 mi). At the time the Navy was tracking a fragment of casing from the Discoverer VIII satellite launch which had a very similar orbit.[2][3]

An object photographed in 1998 during the STS-88 mission has been widely claimed to be this “alien artifact”. However, it is more probable that the photographs are of a thermal blanket that had been lost during an EVA.[1]

For more than half a century the “Black Knight” has been one of the most covered space objects of all time. Some of the coverage has been good, some has been bad, and some is so outlandish that it makes you wonder if any of the coverage is true.

Oddly enough even Pepsi decided to include the Black Knight in a commercial:

For a quick recap in case you did not have enough time to read the entire article, Mysteriousearth.net created an article called 20 Facts About the 13,000 Year Old Black Knight Satellite:

  1. According to monitoring agencies around the world, The Black knight has been transmitting radio signals for over 50 years now
  2. The USA and Soviet Union have shown particular interest in this “unidentified space object”
  3. Rumors are that it was Nikola Tesla the first man to “intercept” a signal from this otherworldly satellite in 1899 after building a high-voltage radio device in Colorado Springs.
  4. Since the 1930′s Astronomers worldwide have been reporting strange radio signals which allegedly come from the “Black Knight”.
  5. In 1957, Dr. Luis Corralos of the Communications Ministry in Venezuela photographed it while taking pictures of Sputnik II as it passed over Caracas.
  6. The story of the Black Knight made its media debut in the 1940′s when the St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner wrote about the “Satellite” on May 14th, 1954.
  7. The Time Magazine wrote about it on the seventh of March, 1960.
  8. In 1957, an unknown “object” was seen “shadowing”  the Sputnik 1 Spacecraft. According to reports, the “unidentified object” was in Polar orbit.
  9. in 1957. The United Stated nor the Russians possessed the technology to maintain a spacecraft in Polar Orbit.
  10. The first Polar-orbiting satellite was launched in 1960.
  11. Polar orbits are often used for earth-mapping, earth observation, capturing the earth as time passes from one point and reconnaissance satellites. This would put the Black Knight in the category of an observational Satellite.

The Muchea tracking station, in Australia, which Cooper reported the object to, picked up this Unidentified object on Radar traveling 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
  18. According to the decoded message, the Black Knight originated from the Epsilon Bootes Star System 13.000 years ago.
  19. On August 23, 1954, the technology magazine Aviation Week and Space Technology released a story about the Black Knight Satellite that angered the Pentagon who were trying to keep the information secret.
  20. NASA has released official images which apparently show the Black Knight Satellite.

Because of the variety of coverage, it is hard to know for sure if we are looking at space debris or something that originated from an otherworldly civilization. Believers and skeptics will continue an ongoing debate, where both sides make excellent points to support their claims. The truth behind the Black Knight Satellite, however, remains a mystery.
