In the early 1950’s, as the space exploration race between the United States and the Soviet Union brewed, the U.S. made an alarming discovery…

Since possibly the beginning of man, we’ve unwaveringly mused at the existence of other forms of life out in the universe. The vastness of it all – the trillions upon trillions of stars, each making up just one of billions of galaxies, the size and scope of which are literally unfathomable. And here we are, one tiny planet in one solar system, revolving around one star, in an endless sea of others.

The more we discover about the universe, the more our feeble existence begs the question, “are we alone?” And what if, not only were we not alone, but “visitors” had been watching us up close this entire time.

What was found was a large unknown satellite rhythmically orbiting the Earth, allegedly broadcasting an unidentifiable signal. Of course, the go-to assumption would be that it was one of the Russian’s satellites. Except, at the time it was discovered, neither Russia, nor any other nation had developed the technology to launch a satellite into orbit…

This of course, sparked a media outpouring, and officially marked the beginning of widespread speculation of extra-terrestrial life and UFO’s as we know it.

As suspicions began to culminate and spread, the U.S. government released an official statement saying that the object was “just a piece of space debris.” Keep in mind, no country at that time, including the U.S, had the ability to launch anything more than small probes into space, which were incredibly small, and often times didn’t maintain orbit for very long.

However, the U.S. government’s statement didn’t stop anyone from continuing to speculate, and eventually, the object was officially name, “The Black Knight.”

Several photographs were taken of the Black Knight by NASA, to analyze its metrics and appearance. According to NASA experts and astronomers’ estimations, the object, based on its size, weighed at least 10 tons. As mentioned before, technology in the 1950s was nowhere close to being capable of launching something of such weight into space.

While the Black Knight hadn’t appeared to emit any activity other than its strange and indecipherable signal, something unusual happened in 1963…

During a space exploration flight that year, astronaut Gordon Cooper reported seeing a glowing green object orbiting Earth. He reported the object to NASA and stated that it appeared to be moving toward his capsule…

The object was verified by NASA, but reporters were prohibited from asking Cooper any questions about it when he returned to Earth. The official published explanation for what the astronaut saw was “high levels of carbon dioxide, which caused hallucinations.”

Smells like a cover up if you ask me.

So what do you think? Space debris, or alien visitation?

If it is something extraterrestrial, whoever sent it doesn’t have the intent to harm us. Or, maybe their just gathering as much intel and research as possible, waiting for the right moment. But that’s all speculation, of course…isn’t it?
