Black Knight is an unofficial name given to a supposed satellite that is much like the Moon but smaller and harder to detect, and near polar orbit of the Earth.

Detection of the Black Knight may have caught the attention of the Big Five (P5) as early as 1950.

The UK’s Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE) had named their 1950’s ballistic missile research programme, Black Knight.

In 1954, Donald Keyhoe told newspapers that the United States Air Force possessed knowledge of two satellites orbiting Earth.[1] If Keyhoe’s information is correct, it would suggest that Black Knight consists of two satelites, one at each of the Earth’s poles.

Because no country had the technology to launch satellites at that time,[1] Black Knight may be extraterrestrial in nature, with a satellite suspended above the North and South poles. NASA is accused of covering up the phenomenon.[1]

First contactEdit

In 1899, Nikola Tesla heard radio frequencies from an astronomical radio source[2][3] that he speculated could have come from Mars.[4] However, the frequencies might have originated from Black Knight.[5] The interrogation of Sethimus seems to support Tesla’s notion that what he heard was from an “intelligent control”, and that it was not by mere coincidence.


The Black Knight conspiracy is that true North and true South poles are protected by a possible joint alien-human space force. A number of artificial satellites, including those of Google Earth, are said to be orbiting the poles to monitor and coverup pole entrances to Hollow Earth.

STS-88 photoEdit

One attempt to identify the Black Knight phenomenon, was the space object captured in a photo taken in 1998, during the STS-88 mission.[1] However, the object was catalogued by NASA as a photo of space debris.[6] Space journalist James Oberg considers it as probable debris from a thermal blanket that was lost during the mission.[7][8]
