“The Black Knight”: An artificial satellite 13,000 years old

Every year, dozens of artificial satellites are launched from the surface of our planet to serve different purposes. Some are used for communication, some for navigation, and some for military purposes. But there is one mysterious satellite in orbit that does not belong to any of the powers that possess the technology to launch satellites into orbit. “The Black Knight” was the name given to this object by NASA astronauts when they first saw it.

The signal from this satellite was first picked up in 1922 when an amateur radio operator in Italy picked up an unknown signal coming from outside the Earth’s atmosphere.

However, after that, until 1958, nothing was known about this object. An amateur astronomer then claimed to have noticed this object in the sky with his telescope.

Subsequently, it was repeatedly tried to detect it by various observatories around the world, but it was elusive. The peculiarity of this satellite is that it flies in the opposite direction compared to all satellites launched from Earth.

Since 1966 it was publicly announced that there is an object of unknown nature in the orbit of the Earth.

According to some scientists who are supporters of the extraterrestrial theory of its origin estimated age of the satellite is around 13,000 years. However, there is no confirmation of this theory yet.

This satellite periodically shows strange activity, sending a radio signal to Earth with a duration of exactly 8 seconds.

The speed of this satellite is such that it can not be caught by existing spacecraft. The only thing left is to catch it through the lenses of photo and video cameras.
