What is the "Black Knight" satellite? It is a mysterious satellite, of unknown origin, discovered in 1960 which shadowed Sputnik. It is believed to have been of extraterrestrial origin, and signaled back old radio waves from the 1920s and 1930s before it disappeared. In short wave patterns analyzed by astronomer Duncan Lunan, it revealed its origin as Epsilon Bo

This sound like ghost story, too bad I wasn't in bed all with hot cup of cocoa when I read it.

One curious discrepancy ...

[quote][i]Sputnik 1[/i] burned up on 4 January 1958[/quote]

Did the Russians detect the unknown satellite and keep it secret ?

Who discovered the [i]Black Knight[/i] ...

I'm gussing that's not an actual pic :p

On topic, if indeed there is that "unknown" satellite out there, why not come CLOSER to it :wacko:

May or not be -- the pic poster did not give any source.

Could they take color high altitude pictures in 1960 ... ?

[i]Hmmm ...[/i]

In [i]1953[/i], four years before the U.S.S.R. launched Sputnik I, an object of unknown origin was sighted by Dr Lincoln La Paz of the University of New Mexico orbiting the earth. As more reports of sightings trickled in from around the world, the U.S. Department of Defense appointed distinguished astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh (best known for his discovery of the dwarf

Thanks.

Sounds doubtful this is the 'Black Knight' then:

In 1987 Shuttle Endeavour Mission STS-088 photographed a mysteries object orbiting the Earth. There are 5 photos of the object on the NASA web site. It clearly shows a large orbit circling the Earth. Is it possible that NASA inadvertently photographed the Black Knight satellite? Could this be the same object Gordon Cooper spotted over Australia while on its 22 orbit on board Faith 7?

Hard to really say on what it is. I guess that is what makes the theory so exciting.

Well no matter what the picture shows, the Black Knight Satellite topic is interesting because it keeps coming up year after year and apparently has been in circulation since the 1960s in various sizes and shapes.

The biggest issue is finding real information on it, but glancing through it does indicate some kind of tangible info.

I wonder if this was some inspiration for Arthur C. Clarke and the [i]2001: A Space Odyssey[/i].

I wish my grandfather was still around (died about 3 years ago) He and his wife were ham operators during this time and even had talked to some of the apollo missions. But they also did some yellow tape on the side with the polarbear network and codfish networks. They have QSL cards from all over the world... 73's Edited by eXtermia

What? A conspiracy theorist on the Internet hasn't properly sourced their material? What is the Internet coming to?
