Tesla, the Black Knight satellite and the hidden code

The Black Knigth Satellite NASA leaked image


The Black Knight is without a doubt one of the most talked about extraterrestrial objects orbiting our planet at the moment. When first sighted in orbit, it was thought to be a Russian Spy satellite, but this was very quickly dismissed.But the question is for how long has it been there and better yet, who put the mysterious satellite into orbit, and not just any orbit but Polar Orbit. According to several researchers and scientists worldwide, this object is emitting a radio frequency that has been intercepted and even decoded. According to HAM Radio operator, the Black Knight is actually transmitting an Alien message that has a connection with the Epsilon Bootes Star System. But the story goes back even more. One of the most interesting facts is that Nikola Tesla claimed to have intercepted radio signals, from space, from the Black Knight Satellite.


Nikola Tesla is considered one of the most innovative and mysterious men who ever lived. Tesla’s inventions went far beyond electricity. He made groundbreaking discoveries such as wireless radio communications, turbine engines, helicopters (although it was Da Vinci who first had the idea), fluorescent and neon lights, torpedoes and the X-ray among others. By the time of his death, Tesla held nearly 700 worldwide patents. On 17 May 1899, Tesla moved to Colorado Springs where he would investigate atmospheric electricity, observed lightning signals via his receivers. Tesla stated that he observed stationary waves during this time.

The great distances and the nature of what Tesla was detecting from lightning storms confirmed his belief that the earth had a resonant frequency. He produced artificial lightning (with discharges consisting of millions of volts and up to 135 feet long). Thunder from the released energy was heard 15 miles away in Cripple Creek, Colorado. But most importantly while in Colorado Springs, Tesla intercepted strange radio signals that spread through the media incredibly fast. Tesla observed unusual signals from his receiver; Tesla concluded that these signals might actually be signals that have originated somewhere in space.

He mentioned these signals in a letter to reporter Julian Hawthorne at the Philadelphia North American on 8 December 1899 and in a December 1900 letter about possible discoveries in the new century to the Red Cross Society where he referred to messages “from another world” that read “1… 2… 3…”.

But Tesla was not the only one who was able to intercept these mysterious signals. Guglielmo Marconi, 1st Marquis of Marconi, was an Italian inventor and electrical engineer, known for his pioneering work on long-distance radio transmission and his development of Marconi’s law and a radio telegraph system. Guglielmo Marconi also intercepted signals originating from space a few years after Tesla; researchers have since claimed that Tesla and Marconi intercepted the same signals.

The Black Knight Satellite


Four years before the launch of Sputnik I, in 1953, The Black Knight Satellite was spotted by Dr. Lincoln La Paz of the University of New Mexico. Even the Department of Defense showed extreme interest in the Black Knight Satellite and apparently they even appointed astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh to run a search for the object. In 1957, the Black Knight Satellite was once again in the headlines after Dr. Luis Corralos of the Communications Ministry in Venezuela photographed it while taking pictures of Sputnik II as it passed over Caracas. But unlike Sputnik I and II, this mysterious satellite orbited in an east to west orbit. The Russian and American satellite at that time moved west to east thereby using the Earth’s natural rotation stay in orbit speed, back then our technology wasn’t that advanced, so it was quite hard to keep a satellite in that kind of orbit.

Four years after the launch of Sputnik, a mysterious object was seen “shadowing” the Sputnik I. The object was in polar orbit, but at that time, neither the Americans nor the Russians had the technology or ability to maintain a Satellite in Polar orbit, so if it wasn’t the United Stated and the Russians, who placed it there?

In 1960, the Black Knight was again in the media, as researchers spotted the mysterious satellite again in polar orbit. The weight of the Black Knight Satellite was calculated, and researchers estimated that the object weights over 15 tons. Again, neither the Americans or Russian had the technology to send up a satellite that heavy into space. Research showed that the Black Knight moved as twice as fast as any other man-made object in orbit. Robert L. Johnson, director of the Adler Planetarium, stated that the Black Knight was very unpredictable and that it did not keep up a regular schedule. It would appear sometimes, and sometimes it didn’t. It is very unpredictable, and it is very difficult actually to see it in the sky.

The Black Knight Satellite was even photographed by the Grumman Aircraft Corporation. The Military seemed very interested in the Black Knight Satellite then, to the point that they even created a special committee to gather information and offer further insight on the Black Knight Satellite.

In the 1970’s something new was discovered about the Black Knight Satellite and it was thanks to Duncan Lunan, a scientist from Scotland that was able to decipher the message that was being broadcasted by the Black Knight Satellite.

Duncan plotted a vertical axis of the transmitted pulse sequence with a horizontal axis of echo delay time and as a result, he found a  picture of the Epsilon Bootes Star System or better said as it would look 15,000 years ago.According to Duncan, a message accompanied the star map. The message that the Black Knight Satellite 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.”


The video above, even though it dismisses the fact that this is an actual Satellite, shows a video recording from space of the Black Knight Satellite. Very interesting footage.

Is the Black Knight Satellite an extraterrestrial piece of technology orbiting our Planet? Or is there another explanation for it. It surely could be just a combination of unrelated information; something made up throughout the years or opinions of people that have over-interpreted the images provided to the public. Many questions but not enough answers, the Black Knight continues to be a mystery in the sky.

    Interesting. Has there been investigation into the Black Knight since 1970? Did anyone else verify Duncan’s message? If the Satellite was ‘activated’ by radio waves, how long would it take the Black knight to send communications to the mother planet? And if so, it would have collected alot of data over a 15k span and sent everything its gathered over the years back home. So if the data is intriguing to whomever is in Epsilon Bootis would they send a delegation maybe? and if they could travel at the speed of light, how many years would that take to reach us? Or possibly it’s just a big black rock stuck in polar orbit.

    Now, this is actual news, as opposed to the usual ilk as reported by our so-called News media, ie; The trials and tribulations of the Kardashians, etc. Anyone reading this should be well and truly pissed off at the fact that the “news” media outlets ignore this and other events that have a real impact on our lives. Imagine what else they are neglecting to report…

  • Steve Carpenter

    I’ve always been fascinated by the Black Knight and have no reason to discount the original reports. HOWEVER, those pics have been proven, beyond any shadow of doubt, to be a thermal blanket that is now space junk. Even if it weren’t patently obvious just from looking at it, it in no way meshes with the claimed orbit of the Black Knight. I hope more research is done and new info comes to light on the BK, but associating these photos with it just undermines credibility.

    • Bedoubleedoublaryuen

      Roswell object looked like an emergency blanket

    • Nathan Togain

      And who are you saying says this Steve? Any credible source would strengthen your argument.

    • Alex Moffat

      You mean the pictures from the late 90s they first announced officially as old space debris from a crashed satellite? That’s a bit like confusing your duvet with a bus isn’t it? I know which I’d rather sleep under. To believe that some of the brightest minds on earth would confuse such a thing is an insult to human and your own intelligence isn’t it? Having worked on top secret projects for BAE systems in 2006-2009 I can confirm its existence but thats about all. It’s as confusing to us engineers as the physicists/mathematicians. Unfortunately there’s a lot of rubbish around the “UFO” scene but there is definitely something there monitoring us for 70+ years and more. Its under intelligent control and we’ve been tracking it since. I believe it’s precise orbit is still available online at some sources taken from radar and satellite tracking of the object from all round the world. It’s hard to cut through all the nonsense but the truth is available. It also doesn’t have a regular orbit, it speeds up, slows down and even mirrors the movements of other satellites. As I said, intelligent control. It appears to be monitoring us and our activity in space so that’s the reason it’s sometimes not on its plotted path, it deviates from it to observe our activity. Also remember that without imagination no scientific discovery would of ever been made. Something has to be imagined before it can become reality. Who says this won’t one day be known as fact when such information isn’t withheld from the general populace.

  • gazpefoc

    Hmm, how did the aliens knew 15k years ago how the stars will be named today?

    • mace

      They are here on earth already and influenced it? Are the object may be that old but they are able to change the message?

    • Drew Swanson

      Simple: monitoring and interpreting our own transmissions. Considering the fact that it has transmitted increasingly complex signals as we progressed technologically, it would be safe to assume that whatever manages its communications is capable of translating data gathered from our own transmissions (e.g. television, radio), discerning what we call the object it intends to refer to, and adapting its method and message using its newly-acquired information to ensure that their message can be easily understood.

      Rule #1 of Friendly First Contact Scenarios:
      Make your race’s existence known only gradually to ensure that the species you intend to contact will be comfortable in coexisting with extraterrestrials.

      • Jim

        Um,,,13,000 years ago, we didn’t have any transmissions for them to monitor…and it only transmits on a low power VHF band that has been around a very long time.

        There is absolutely no evidence that “it has transmitted increasingly complex signals as we progressed technologically” as you claim…none at all.

        • Meriale Merson

          I don’t believe that they (whoever they were) were sending signals to us. But sending information back to wherever it originated from.

    • Fwiizz

      It does not matter what the name is. Everyone is stupid. It is all in the coordinates and numbers. Numbers can be represented differently but all in all equate to the same solution (in any language for example). If our math works for us, than it will work for aliens as well, however what we may still consider theories they would have proved considering they would have to be advanced enough to be capable of that.

  • kevin

    Is there any Empirical Information as to what the radio frequency the message was sent on? In my opinion it is simply “Bat Shit Crazy” to believe this nonsense. If there was a unknown object out there that appeared to be under intelligent control, the U.S. would have either blew it up or gave it foreign aid!

  • Shamic

    You know, even if you are religious this would make sense. If there was creations before us, maybe this is a remaining technology of theirs?

  • CarlT

    An object photographed in 1998 during the STS-88 mission has been widely claimed to be this “alien artifact”. According to Martina Redpath of Armagh Planetarium and James Oberg,it is more probable that the photographs are of a thermal blanket that was confirmed as lost during an EVA Redpath 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. These ingredients have chopped up, stirred together and stewed on the internet to one rambling and inconsistent dollop of myth.

    • Brian Flickinger

      This might be true , but it does not explain the thousands of structures , technology and spacecraft I discovered on GOOGLE EARTH MOON . You can see a few of these images from GOOGLE EARTH -MOON , by NASA / J.A.X.A , which have the coordinates on the bottom . I created a site on FACEBOOK to highlight some of the discoveries I made . The site is call Alien Civilization on the Moon .

    • Alex Moffat

      Armagh planetarium is actually one of the few institutions to of tracked the object and admit to it being there. There’s something there definitely, what? We don’t know for sure. But having worked as an engineer for BAE systems working with ARV’s I can tell you without doubt there is more out there than you can imagine. Most of which I doubt your mind capable. The truth is stranger than fiction, although fiction on the matter does have an element of truth seeded inside.

  • jackal

    assuming the black knight is ET in origin, what gives? did the aliens know what WE named the star system? or did they just so happen to name their star system the same name we gave it? or maybe the guy who supposedly decoded it just interpreted some things as we humans saw them? what id like to know is how accurate the decoded message is, and how much of it is guess work/biased interpretation from our perspective. are we implanting our own meanings into a message that means something else entirely perhaps?
