Thanks for clearing that out good sir

you missed 5069 = " Color positive"


I just copy pasted from the nasa link ;)

Thanks.

Sounds doubtful this is the 'Black Knight' then:


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 2001: A Space Odyssey.

if it's a space debris, then it's a debris from what?

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

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



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

Good question. ;)
