An Alien Satellite is in Retrograde Orbit Around Earth
There are currently more than 100,000 satellites orbiting the Earth, from space junk, to high tech probes transmitting signals back to Earth. But one of these satellites is thought to be of extraterrestrial origin and has been circling our planet, prior to the launch of Sputnik. This mysterious spacecraft is known as the Black Knight satellite, alleged to be of alien provenance and covered up by NASA for more than 60 years.
While most man-made satellites orbit in prograde, due to the ease and fuel efficiency of using the Earth’s natural gravitational pull, the Black Knight is said to orbit in retrograde, adding to its curious nature. But is it actually an alien satellite monitoring our planet, or simply a thermal space blanket like NASA has claimed photo evidence of it to be?

Tesla and the Black Knight Satellite
Recently, a series of fast radio bursts was picked up by Stephen Hawking’s Breakthrough Listen Initiative, which some have speculated could be coming from the technology of an advanced, extraterrestrial species. This wouldn’t be the first time a scientist picked up signals from the cosmos and believed it to be of alien origin. Nearly a century ago, Nikola Tesla claimed to have recorded electrical signals at his laboratory in Colorado Springs that were of intelligent nature.
Tesla had been working on the technology for his Wardenclyffe Tower, when he noticed signals which were not of Earthly origin and could be ruled out as being weather-related. He believed the signals were being transmitted from a civilization on Mars, so he developed a device to send signals back out to make contact. Tesla was arguably the most well-versed in radio signal transmission at the time, having pioneered the technology, so it’s hard to imagine he would have been confused by any Earthly interference.
No one knows exactly what those signals were, but some believe they may have been a transmission from the Black Knight satellite. Not long after Tesla’s reception, an amateur radio operator in Norway named Jørgen Hals, recorded transmissions called Long Delayed Echoes, or LDEs. Stanford professor, Ron Bracewell, proposed the idea that these echoes were the product of an alien satellite picking up radio signals from Earth and rebroadcasting them back, creating a delay of several seconds. Some speculate that the Black Knight could be this theoretical transmitter, known as a Bracewell probe.
In the early 1970s, a man named Duncan Lunan reinterpreted and examined these LDEs, concluding they were too strong to simply be echoed radio signals from Earth. Lunan said he translated the signals and, to his surprise found a map of Epsilon Boötis, a binary star in the Boötes system. Although Lunan doesn’t like his interpretation of the LDEs associated with the conspiracy surrounding the Black Knight, there are similarities in nature and timeliness.
Is the Black Knight Satellite Real?
In 1954, a few news reports claimed the U.S. Air Force had discovered two satellites orbiting the Earth. With the first man-made satellite, Sputnik, not launching for another three years, the discovery was surprising. But the Air Force was not the only government agency to notice the satellites. The Venezuelan Communications Ministry also noticed their presence a few years later while tracking Sputnik. The ministry noted that these satellites were moving from East to West, in retrograde orbit. Aside from the fact that there were only a few artificial satellites in orbit at the time, none would have been in retrograde orbit.
In 1954, Donald Keyhoe claimed found a satellite was found to orbiting Earth. Keyhoe was originally a marine naval aviator who later became the most prominent name in ufology, establishing the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, or NICAP. Keyhoe’s claim was picked up by the San Francisco Examiner and St. Louis Post Dispatch. According to the articles, Keyhoe said that the Secretary of the Air Force, Harold Talbott, was aware of the satellites and had even witnessed a ‘silvery, disc-shaped object’ in the sky. Though, Talbott dismissed these claims.
Another confounding characteristic of the Black Knight was the fact that it was circling the Earth in polar orbit, a feat not accomplished by man-made satellites until 1960. This type of orbit is typically used for mapping, reconnaissance, and tracking, and often it is done in a sun-synchronous orbit so that each time the satellite passes a particular spot, it is the same time of day. The combination of retrograde and polar orbits makes this type of satellite stick out especially in the late 50s/early 60s when satellite technology was in its nascent phases. And it wasn’t just military entities who photographed an unidentified satellite, but also the Smithsonian Observatory at Harvard as well as the Gruman Aircraft Corporation in New York.
But the story of the Black Knight gets even more bizarre with the French Space Commission’s observation of the satellite while Jacques Vallée was on staff. Despite excitement and intrigue by Vallée and his colleagues, a senior member of his team deleted their imaging of the satellite, for reasons unknown. While Vallée said he believed it was out of embarrassment for the commission’s inability to identify the orbiting object, it was becoming increasingly common for agencies around the world to notice the unidentified satellite, without explanation.
NASA’s Black Knight Satellite Explanation
There are several pictures circulating the internet of what is thought to be the Black Knight. These pictures, according to NASA, are images of a thermal cover dropped during a spacewalk or during some type of extra-vehicular activity on the ISS. During this expedition, one astronaut purportedly finished his mission early and was asked to cover the space station’s trunnion pins with thermal covers. The astronaut was asked to complete this as a free-floating task, despite not having the cover properly attached, inevitably losing track of it as it floated off.
When asked later which pin he lost the cover to, he said he could not remember and that he was too upset with himself to think about it. NASA maintains that the photographs most people point to as evidence of the black knight are images of this thermal cover. There is also a video of the astronauts inside the space station filming and photographing the cover as it floats off.
It is entirely possible that NASA’s claims are true. There are plenty of similarities between the thermal cover and the images believed to be the Black Knight. There aren’t however, sufficient explanations of sightings and documentation of the satellite from the 1950s and 60s by numerous government and scientific agencies.
In 1963, while orbiting Earth, astronaut Gordon Cooper reported seeing a glowing green light ahead of his Mercury 9 module. He reported it to the Australian Space Command, who were able to track it. Oddly enough, when Cooper returned to Earth he was not allowed to talk about the light and it was officially reported he had suffered hallucinations from an excess of carbon dioxide in his cabin.
Despite NASA’s attempt to explain what Cooper saw with a more mundane explanation, he continued throughout his life to divulge stories that detailed his experiences with UFOs and other unexplained phenomena. He often spoke of attempted government cover-ups regarding UFOs and unexplained activity, so it could be probable he saw the Black Knight realizing its existence was deliberately being withheld from the public.

Nazi UFO Technology: Foo Fighters Exposed
It was just before Christmas in 1944. An American Air Force pilot was flying over enemy territory, carefully looking out for a German war plane, when he and his radio operator both saw round glowing objects approaching. The unidentified flying objects (UFOs) got behind the U.S. military plane and began following it. The American pilot tried several maneuvers in an attempt to lose the mysterious objects, but even a steep dive or sharp turns could not lose them. Suddenly, the objects disappeared. Surprisingly, during the entire encounter, neither the American pilot nor the mysterious objects fired any shots.
This is just one example of many similar incidents that occurred over the skies of Germany during the last few months of World War II. Sometimes, the objects showed up on radar screens. Other times, more than one person observed the objects but they did not show up on radar. What were the mysterious objects? Were they UFOs from extraterrestrials? Or were they some sort of Nazi Ufo experiment? No one can be sure, but there are a variety of theories.
The Foo Fighters
Toward the end of the war, U.S. pilots frequently reported nighttime sightings of these UFOs. The objects always traveled at great speeds and were able to make maneuvers to keep up with American planes. The Allies worried that Germany had created a new weapon even though no shots were ever fired.
The objects received the nickname “foo fighters” after a popular cartoon of the time called “Smoky Stover.” In the cartoon, the Smoky character often said, “Where there’s foo there’s fire.” The term caught on and even radar operators used the term “foo fighter” to alert pilots of sightings.
Although most of the encounters occurred over Europe, there were a few similar incidents that occurred over the Indian Ocean. Interestingly, after the war was over, the Allies discovered that the Axis powers had also seen the objects, and feared that the Allies had developed a secret weapon.
Also after the war ended, Rudolf Lusar, a major from the German Army, wrote a book about secret weapons used by Germany during the war. He described two types of golden ball-shaped objects the Allied pilots identified during the war. One version he referred to as the “Feuerball.” The other was the “Kugelblitz.”
According to Lusar, the devices were jet-propelled and guided automatically. Their purpose was to emit electrostatic discharges from Klystron tubes to disrupt the electrical systems of the Air Force bombers’ engines and prevent them from dropping bombs.
Although Lusar’s description seems plausible, researchers disagree about the validity of his account. For instance, not a single Allied plane ever reported complications from an encounter with a foo fighter. So, it seems that if the Germans had developed such a weapon, they would have been able to replace the ineffective klystron tubes with a substance that would have accomplished their goal.
To date, no conclusive explanation for the foo fighters have ever been found. So the question remains, what technology was available to the Germans and how did they use it?
German Development of Technology and Exploration of Antarctica
Maria Orsic and the Vril Society
It’s no secret that the Germans used all their available resources in an attempt to be the greatest nation in the world. One of their great pursuits at the time was space travel. To reach their goal, they used the information provided by psychic Maria Orsic and the Vril Society to assist them. When Orsic channeled the blueprints and instructions for building a circular flying machine, the Vril Society began paying for and assimilating parts from other industrial sources.
Maria Orsic and other Vril Society members met with Hitler, Himmler and others in January 1944 to discuss the circular flying machine project. There was at least one test flight late in the year which did not end as all had hoped for. The machine returned more damaged than expected after its flight to another planet.
Instead of continuing work on the project and channeling helpful information, Orsic disappeared. She was last seen in early 1945. On March 11, 1945, she sent a letter to members of her organization that ended with the statement, “niemand bleibt heir,” or “no man stays here.”
No Vril member, including Maria, was ever seen or heard from again. Did they escape to outer space? Meanwhile, did Germany continue its experimentation with circular spacecraft?
Viktor Schauberger and German UFOs
Viktor Schauberger was an Austrian physicist and inventor who rose to prominence in Nazi Germany. He was widely known for his vortex experiments using water and fish. He then developed turbines that could create anti-gravity propulsion.
In 1939, Hitler summoned Schauberger to Berlin for a meeting. At first, Hitler greeted Schauberger warmly and said he called the meeting to discuss Schauberger’s work. However, the meeting lasted for approximately 11 hours before Schauberger could leave.
In 1943, Schauberger was 58 years old and suffering from war wounds. Even so, he was drafted into the German Waffen-SS and placed under the direct control of Heinrich Himmler. Himmler forced Schauberger to research and develop a new secret weapon and threatened to kill him if he did not cooperate. Schauberger was then housed at Schloss Schoenbrunn so that engineers imprisoned nearby could assist him with his work.
Schauberger was not an easy pushover. Despite receiving death threats, he refused to work unless he could personally select the engineers to be on his team. He further demanded that his engineers gain freedom from the concentration camp, were properly clothed in civilian clothes, given adequate food, and were housed in civilian accommodations. He argued that if his workers feared for their lives, it would stifle their creativity and make them unproductive.
Surprisingly, the SS agreed to his demands. He chose approximately 30 engineers and other workers to leave the concentration camp and be housed in civilian housing exactly as he had demanded. When he first assembled his group, he lectured them about how important it was for them to work hard and never try to escape. He told them if any one of them tried to escape, he himself would face execution. They did what Schauberger told them to do and developed two machines. At the end of the war, the Allies confiscated the top secret information, forever concealing this technology from the public.
1930s German Exploration of Antarctica
In the late 1930s, Germany dedicated substantial resources to exploring Antarctica. In 1943, German Grand Admiral Donitz proudly proclaimed, “The German submarine fleet is proud of having built for the Fuhrer, in another part of the world, a Shangri-la land, an impregnable fortress.” During the 1938-39 expedition, the Germans claimed to find ice-free lakes with warm water and surrounding vegetation. The Germans named their new Antarctica colony “Neuschwabanland.”
There were reports that when the Nazis faced defeat, some scientists actually escaped in U-boats filled with mercury to head to their Antarctica fortress. Two of the boats had mechanical difficulties and surrendered in Argentina. One U-boat wrecked in Indonesia and another sank in a Norwegian fjord. Meanwhile, a large number of U-boats were never found. Could they have made it to their Antarctica destination?
Did Germany have more resources than the Allies believed? Where did the mercury come from, and what did the Germans plan to use it for?
Operation Paperclip Confirms Germans Had Brilliant Scientists And Advanced Technology
As the war came to an end, the United States recognized that Germany had technology that might be helpful to the U.S. As a result, General Patton captured German factories in Silesia that housed proprietary technology and weapons. There was substantial evidence that Germany was working on circular aircraft that could work not just in the Earth’s atmosphere, but also outside of it. It seemed obvious that the Germans had the technology and scientists but not the resources (such as oil, electricity and the necessary facilities) to produce such an advanced aircraft. For this reason, the U.S. attempted to extricate scientists from Germany and bring them to America. The program had a codename of Operation Paperclip.
The scientists, who specialized in aerodynamics, rocketry and chemical weapons, were of particular interest. They were silently and secretly relocated within the U.S. without going through the State Department’s strict approval process. Most notably among them was Wernher von Braun.
Before and during the war, von Braun was head of the Germans’ rocket development program. After coming to the U.S. by way of Operation Paperclip, he became a naturalized citizen and eventually became the director of the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). He is considered the father of the American space program.
Even as they were basking in the glory of the win, the Allies had suspicions that something was amiss.
In response to interrogations, some Germans revealed that there was a secret German base in Antarctica. The government decided to send famed Admiral Richard Byrd to investigate a concern that there still may be weapons stashed in the secret hideout.
In the late summer of 1946, Byrd headed to Antarctica with about 4,700 military personnel along with naval support ships. They had at least one aircraft carrier as they embarked on “Task Force 68,” nicknamed Operation Highjump. The expedition had several months to complete its mission, but ended after only about eight weeks due to heavy casualties.
On the way to their destination, Byrd and his crew reported experiencing a “mysterious UFO force” that destroyed several of their airplanes and ships and killed several crew members. Was this perhaps the “first known historical incident involving a battle between U.S. naval forces and an unknown UFO force stationed in Antarctica?”
Byrd continued onward. He found Neuschwabenland, which featured underground caverns flowing with warm water and signs of vegetation. But, he and his men could not stay long nor could they do any major exploration. They were continually bombarded by aircraft and forced to leave. Had they perhaps found a post-war hiding place for Nazis who had actually been able to escape?
On their way home, Byrd and his group stopped briefly in Santiago, Chile, where Byrd was interviewed while still aboard the expedition’s command ship. Byrd warned that although he was not trying to scare anyone, it was clear to him that if there was a new war, the U.S. could face attack via planes flying over one or both of the poles. He noted that with the “fantastic speed with which the world is shrinking” the U.S. would no longer be safe. After that interview, Byrd rarely spoke about his Operation Highjump experience.
In 2006, a Russian intelligence report included the testimony of two U.S. Navy Seamen who had been on Admiral Byrd’s Operation Highjump expedition. Both seaman recounted seeing brightly lit UFOs appear dramatically out of the ocean. They watched them soar into the sky and disappear. The troops fired at the UFOs, but the UFOs never fired back. Some on the expedition concluded that the UFOs had a mission to deter them and send them away, not to harm them.
Were the UFOs encountered by Admiral Byrd protecting Nazis hiding out in Antarctica? Were they exclusively built by German scientists to deter its earthly enemies or did they come from the Vril Society’s mysterious planet? The question still stands today, but there’s always more to learn.
