Did Nostradamus predict the Black Knight Satellite?

According to a quote attributed to Nostradamus, it is believed the French prophet said that ‘Mankind will discover objects in space sent to us by the watchers.

For years the Black Knight satellite has caused a huge debate among people on social networks, blogs, and websites.

It is believed that there is an object, called the Black Knight Satellite, located in polar orbit around our planet.

While many believe –and are probably right— that the object is nothing more than space debris, others firmly believe the Black Knight Satellite is an alien probe that has been orbiting Earth for at least 13,000 years.

Interestingly, over 50 years ago, experts in the US thought the Black Knight Satellite was a Russian Spy Satellite. The story about the object can even be traced to the 1940’s when the St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner wrote about the “Satellite” on May 14th, 1954.

Furthermore, the Time Magazine also wrote about it in an article on the seventh of March, 1960.

Here is what they said about it:

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.

Read the complete story by visiting the Time Magazine website.

The story deepens as we find that on August 23, 1954, the technology magazine Aviation Week and Space Technology released a story that angered the Pentagon, who were trying to keep the information secret.

The short article stated: 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.

And now, a quote allegedly attributed to Nostradamus appeared online.

Supposedly, the French prophet said that MANKIND WILL DISCOVER, OBJECTS IN SPACE, SENT TO US BY THE WATCHERS.

But why do people think he talked about The Black Knight Satellite?

Well, it is believed that someone actually decoded the messages coming from the Black Knight Satellite. The decoded a series of signals from the alleged satellite were interpreted as s a star chart centered on the Epsilon Bootes Star System and that the Black Knight  originated from this System 13,000 years ago.


The message that the Black Knight Satellite supposedly transmits is the following:

START HERE.
OUR HOME IS EPSILON BOOTIS.
WHICH IS A DOUBLE STAR.
WE LIVE ON THE 6th PLANET OF 7 – CHECK THAT, 6th OF 7 –
COUNTING OUTWARDS FROM THE SUN
WHICH IS THE LARGER OF THE TWO.
OUR 6th PLANET HAS ONE MOON,
OUR 4th PLANET HAS THREE,
OUR FIRST AND THIRD PLANETS EACH HAVE ONE.
OUR PROBE IS IN THE ORBIT OF YOUR MOON
THIS UPDATES THE POSITION OF ARCTURUS SHOWN ON OUR MAPS.”


While this is an interesting quote, we are unable to verify its accuracy and authenticity. The quote can only be traced back to AZ Quotes, but we have still not seen the original text written by Nostradamus.

Furthermore, many believe that there isn’t actually any mystery behind the Black Knight Satellite and that the object is just a piece of space debris, randomly floating around our planet.

According to Martina Redpath of Armagh Planetarium and James Oberg, it is probable that the photographs of the so-called Black Knight Satellite are those of a thermal blanket that was confirmed as lost during an EVA.

Redpath even wrote:

“Black Knight is a jumble of completely unrelated stories; reports of unusual science observations, authors promoting fringe ideas, classified spy satellites and people over-interpreting photos.”

    “Furthermore, many believe that there isn’t actually any mystery behind the Black Knight Satellite and that the object is just a piece of space debris, randomly floating around our planet.”

    Wrong. You failed to mention that it does NOT orbit in a normal orbit but rather over the poles which is impossible for us to do. Which means what? Its artificial AND its not from us.

    • Tim Sherman

      Good answer

      • The Ponyrider of Oz

        Um….No it wasnt.

    • Michelle Salcedo

      Exactly,….

      • Angry Tom

        You’re a believer too?

    • The Ponyrider of Oz

      Wrong. Its space debris.

      • Chris Chujkal

        Right! The day you can show me how debris can orbit around the poles and even change its orbit, disappear and reappear and sending radio signals, I am ready to listen to you. Open your mind for the world you really live in.

        • The Ponyrider of Oz

          Lol.
          What you have described is an amalgamation of wild rumours to come up with an eventual conspiracy theory.

          • Chris Chujkal

            Someone who is laughing and using the words “conspiracy theory” isn’t worth to waste time to explain anything. Keep sleeping and die stupid. People like you aren’t worth being helped. Probably religious.

          • The Ponyrider of Oz

            My word you are an angry one.
            I checked your history too. You poor guy.
            Angry & an idiot.
            Now run along like a good fellow. Chop chop.

            Religious?? You??? Bwhahahahaha.

          • The Ponyrider of Oz

            I know. I know. Lol.
            I just couldn’t be bothered to qualify that point with that idiot.

          • rickd12

            Yes. “Agree with me or you’re stupid” isn’t a valid way to argue your point, unless you’re Catholic

          • The Ponyrider of Oz

            Lol matey.

            Ssshhhh…..my father was catholic but i don’t advertise it….

            Its in my nature S64! Lol.

            The name changes though. ..often.

          • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

            That’s what makes them mad, your name-changing flurry tells them you don’t stand still like they do.

          • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

            Yeah, I giggled at that too.

          • rickd12

            Brilliant.

    • MissionBernal

      A satellite can orbit the poles. I’m not sure why you think we cannot configure a satellite to orbit in that manner. It seems unlikely that space debris would fall into a polar orbit just by chance, but setting a satellite in that orbit is absolutely possible (whether we, humans, set it up that way or some other intelligent being did)

    • rickd12

      We have been able to orbit the poles since the 60’s. Although i like the idea of a Alien satellite orbiting our planet i must bow to the evidence that says it is space debris, specifically a thermal blanket

  • Goatess

    “but we have still not seen the original text written by Nostradamus.” So why title this “Did Nostradamus predict the Black Knight satellite”????? If you don’t have the Nostradamus quote?????
    Regarding Nostradamus, this site is right up there with the National Enquirer. Please. Enough with the Nostradamus crap. If you don’t have the quote — or if you have A quote but can’t prove that it was FROM Nostradamus (the tabloids find new Nostradamus quotes EVERY SINGLE YEAR), just drop it.

  • MissionBernal

    So a 13,000 year old satellite’s message was sent naming Epsilon Bootis, which is a star system that has gone by numerous names…only landing on Epsilon Bootis in 2016? Was the message also in English, but that would have been so convenient? So glad aliens from 13k years ago were so forward thinking as to use our existing language and our current star system naming convention.

    • george

      worthy comment….they are fooling us……May be they may argue that they are advanced to find out our naming conventions???….

    • Jhollman

      I was about to say exactly this.
      Fake news sites should require their “journalists” to at least have passed the middle school.

  • george

    Finally that story on alien interaction collapsed!!!…When you draft a fiction do it neatly and professionally,,,,else you will face debacle!!

  • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

    I was under the impression that Nik Tesla intercepted signals from the BK back in 1899 or so and interpreted some of them then. This would completely throw out the “Thermal Blanket” story so widely accepted since we didn’t have the ability to get one of those up there back then.
    This subject will always be fun to argue about. Nothing is definitive. YouTube is full of conspiracies, answers and nutjobs….and the BK certainly produces more each year.
    Me personally? *shrugs* I would like to think it’s something greater than debris from a probe (“smashed to bits by the van allen belt, dontcha know”–Marlio) and greater than a thermal blanket from a ruptured satellite.
    So, until we capture it…to me it’s going to be a mysterious alien artifact…and you can interpret that however you want.
