Remember Orson Wells, who played Professor Richard Pierson, famous opening line from the 1938 Halloween play War of the Worlds? We know now that in the early years of the twentieth century this world was being watched closely by intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own”. Now that it’s the 21st century and 84 years later, is this becoming true?  Nicola Tesla was the first notable person to observe the Black Knight Satellite in 1899 through mysterious signals. Interest in the Black Knight Satellite since grew each year though various publications then in 1957, a mysterious object believed to be Black Knight Satellite was spotted screening the Russian Sputnik 1 satellite. There are also several reports that the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation gave much meaning to this mysterious object. On September 3, 1967, months after the it was first detected by radar, a tracking camera at Grumman’s Long Island, New York factory photographed the Black Knight Satellite. 

In 1973 a Scottish astronomer and author Duncan Lunan wrote that he had discovered and decoded a hidden broadcasting signal in outer space radio waves that predate many civilizations. Here’s Lunan’s deciphered message. “Start here. Our home is Epsilon Boötis, which is a double star. We live on the sixth planet of seven, coming from the sun, which is the larger of the two. Our sixth planet has one moon. Our fourth planet has three. Our first and third planets each have one. Our probe is in the position of Arcturus, known in our maps.” Estimated at a weight of 10 tons, NASA published declassified documents of the Black Knight Satellite at a time when public interest seemed to be waning. However, an unexpected resurgence in mass consciousness caused NASA to pull the pictures and much of the story from its website. Luckily though the, the internet’s forever and all can be found. There are several good documentaries including one from mainstream called “Black Knight Satellite the Untold Story”, so no shortage of information from different viewpoints. 

According to Express UK,, two separate people in different parts of the country who were each photographing the Blue Moon on July 31, 2015, allegedly captured the Black Knight. The object was once again passing by the ISS. Is the Black Knight an ancient alien ship or a satellite from somewhere in deep space that is trying to reach out to the human race? Is it space debris left behind by spacecraft made by us? With the new US military arm Space Force, the answer maybe closer, as the truth is out there. The Best is Yet to Come!
