Black Knight Satellite Interest Mysteriously Increasing

A day after I post an article about a new video of Russia’s Tesla Tower, other videos relating to Nikola Tesla began popping up. These concern the Black Knight Satellite whose signals Tesla claimed to have picked up in 1899, long before Sputnik and NASA. Later signals were decoded by a ham radio operator and revealed information indicating the satellite arrived from another star system 13,000 years ago to monitor Earth. Is the Black Knight Satellite showing some interest in Russia’s Tesla Tower?

The videos being uploaded this week don’t appear to be new but their sudden appearance and increased buzz on the Internet about the Black Knight Satellite is.

In 1899, Nikola Tesla picked up unusual signals from an unknown source on his high-voltage receiver in Colorado Springs which he speculated were “intelligently controlled signals” that originated “from another world.” Astronomers have reported picking up similar radio signals since the 1930s and Dr. Lincoln La Paz of the University of New Mexico sighted the possible source in Earth orbit in1953. The U.S. Department of Defense commissioned astronomer Clyde Tombaugh to look for it. A famous article about the Black Knight was published in both the St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner on May 14th 1954. At that time, there were no man-made objects in Earth orbit … that we know of.

That changed in 1957 when the USSR launched Sputnik 1. It was reported that an object believed to be the Black Knight Satellite was “shadowing” Sputnik 1. When Sputnik 2 was launched a month later, Dr. Luis Corralos of the Communications Ministry in Venezuela photographed it again shadowing the satellite. In 1960, a Grumman Aircraft Corporation tracking camera took a picture of it but the company kept its findings secret. In 1963, U.S. astronaut Gordon Cooper reported seeing a UFO like the Black Knight in front of his capsule. A photo taken during a space shuttle mission in 1998 (seen in the videos) shows an object many believe is the Black Knight and a 2014 video feed from the ISS shows a similar object.

Of course, there’s much more about the Black Knight that we know and don’t know, including the link to Philip K. Dick. The military and space programs of both the US and Russia have acknowledged at least the possibility of its existence.

Why the sudden interest in videos about the Black Knight Satellite? Does it have anything to do with Russia’s Tesla Tower? The Roswell slides? Are we getting new signals? What else could it be?
