The "Black Knight" Satellite
The "Black Knight" was first spotted in 1953 by Dr Lincoln La Paz four years before Sputnik 1 (Earth's first artificial satellite) was launched.
Because of increased sightings, astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh, who discovered Pluto in 1930, was assigned by the U.S. Department of Defense to search for the "Black Knight". The results of Dr Tombaugh’s study were never released by the Pentagon.

The Black Knight satellite is claimed to be an object approximately 13,000 years old of extraterrestrial origin orbiting the Earth in near-polar orbit.
First discovered in 1899 by scientist Nikola Tesla while conducting radio experiments, he noticed extraterrestrial repeating sources which are objects in outer space that emit radio waves.
In 1928, Jorgen Hals an amateur radio operator from Norway heard long delayed echoes.
He found "...a steady hiss type static of unknown origin", which eventually he concluded had an extraterrestrial origin.

Detection of the "Black Knight" went cold for a few years until December 1957 when Dr. Luis Corralos of the Communications Ministry in Venezuela photographed it.
Sputnik 1 and 2 were the first modern satellites and they were launched a few months before Dr. Corralos photographed the "Black Knight". While photographing the passing of the Sputnik 2 as it passed over Caracas, he captured the "Black Knight" shadowing the satellite.
In 1960, the "Black Knight" was observed in polar orbit by the Northern American Air Defense System. Polar orbit was not possible for satellites at that time. The "Black Knight" object was also estimated to weigh 15 tons. A size and weight that was not capable to be launched in 1960. Both American and Soviet scientists and military were concerned because no knowledge of technology existed for either government. Yet, the mysterious object existed.
In 1963, American astronaut, Gordon Cooper, was launched into space on his 22 orbit mission in the Faith 7 capsule. He reported seeing a glowing green shape ahead of his capsule, and heading in his direction on his final approach. Although, the event was recorded on radar by the Muchea tracking station in Australia, the official explanation is that an electrical malfunction in the capsule had caused high levels of carbon dioxide, which gave Cooper hallucinations.
During this time, Ham radio operators worldwide had been receiving messages from the "Black Knight". Long Delay Echo (LDE) is an unsolved phenomenon where radio or television signals sent into space bounce back seconds (or even days) later, as if recorded and retransmitted by a satellite. The "Black Knight" remains a mystery. Until it decides to show itself again, we are left to ponder its intentions.
