Black Knight… August 5, 2017

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

I’d never heard of this before reading an Armagh Planetarium blogpost recently – a conspiracy theory about a…

…a spacecraft in near-polar orbit of the Earth that is of extraterrestrial origin, and that NASA is engaged in a cover-up regarding its existence and origin.[2][3][4] This conspiracy theory combines several unrelated stories into one narrative.[5][6]
A 1998 NASA photo is believed by some to show the Black Knight satellite, but NASA has stated that this is likely space debris, specifically a thermal blanket lost during an EVA mission.

The blogpost is particularly good because it links into another conspiracy theory about a supposed alien spacecraft which has been ‘lurking near the Moon for the past 13,000 years’ (though the person who proposed that theory has apparently retracted it).

By the way the comments beneath the piece on Armagh Planetarium are…er… different…

Don’t forget Planet X as well.

Nibiru! I love all that stuff. I’m fascinated by the way it all bleeds into New Age and so on.

Backyard astronomers would have to be in on the conspiracy too, given their ability to take amazing photos of the ISS with their equipment.

Every now and again I’m tempted to publish a post on an obscure conspiracy theory, just for the fun of it, then I remember all the crazies out there. No thanks. It’s bad enough having to monitor all the Zionist/antisemitic conspiracy stuff in the Comments when you write about the Middle East.

That said I love conspiracy theories in the X-Files sense of them. Some of my favourite genre books incorporate similar themes.

And likewise. Completely agree. I don’t believe them, massive conspiracies being just too difficult to keep a lid on, and smaller ones being too small but they’re great.
