The 'Black Knight' Mystery

I received the following in my email today...referencing an image of the Black Knight or Black Knight Satellite:

This spaceship was provided by NASA so we can assume it is not a photo-shopped craft and is real. It is either an alien ship or part of the alleged secret space fleet protecting Earth; the top round device may be part of an offensive system

The size of the Space Shuttle (in terms of height) is 184 ft (56.1 m). The diameter is 28.5 ft

The International Space Station's length and width is about the size of a 300 foot football field.

Alert...NASA has deleted all the links to these UFO photos as of January 2013. UFO sighting photos leaked out of NASA-Johnson Space Center.

Since the image came from NASA originally we can certain this craft was in space and appears to be large enough to hold a crew of six. Only the Extraterrestrials, Russians, the United States, and China are capable of launching a spaceship of this size. The circular disc at the top center may hold an advanced EM weapons system.

Well, I'm not going to add to the argument of...'is this an actual craft or merely space junk?'

An object, supposedly orbiting Earth in near-polar orbit, has had ufologists and fringe authors in a tizzy since the mid-1950's. Some believe it is approximately 13,000 years old and of extraterrestrial origin...and it has been transmitting radio signals for over 50 years now.

This object was photographed in 1998 during the STS-88 mission and has been widely claimed to be the Black Knight and an 'alien artifact'. NASA contends that it is a thermal blanket that had been lost during an EVA during the mission.

The story of the Black Knight started in the 1940′s when the St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner wrote about the 'satellite' on May 14th 1954. The Time Magazine wrote about it in the March 7, 1960 issue:

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.

On August 23, 1954 the Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine released a story that riled the Pentagon...who were attempting to keep the information under wraps:

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, 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.

Over the years there has been plenty of speculation as to the origin and/or existence of the Black Knight. From astronomy novices to astronauts, the claims of an unknown object orbiting the Earth has persisted. What do you think it is? Lon
