The Legend of the Black Knight Satellite
Published: 2:36 PM 4/16/2014
Since the early part of the last century, there have been rumors of a satellite of unknown origin orbiting our planet. That legend was renewed in 1998.
In December 1998, Six US Astronauts aboard the 'Endeavor' began a new and important mission; assemble the International Space Station.
Seven days into the mission, 2 astronauts are installing thermal insulation to the outside of the station. Suddenly, members of the crew excitedly asked, "What's that?"
NASA protocal for sighting of an unknown entity calls first for photographs to be taken of the anomaly. The astronauts aboard Endeavor took many photographs of the strange, flying object.
When the first photograph, a very clear image, is seen by the public, great interest is created, especially for UFO buffs. A dark object is seen with a top of sorts. Later, this object would be referred to as "The Black Knight."
When pressed for answers, NASA officials claimed that the object was nothing more than a thermal blanket that escaped the hands of one of the astronauts applying the material. As to be expected, this explanation was not acceptable to UFO proponents.
Strangely enough, the photographs of the object disappeared from the NASA site. Later, they were replaced, yet with new file numbers.
Many years before the first satellites were launched into space, radars occasionally picked up unknown blips on radar. These became fodder for many, especially conspiracy buffs. Were these from Russia; were they some type of secret weapon?
Were the Soviets that far ahead of us? Then, in 1998, new speculation was created. What was the Black Knight?
