In 1953, four years before the U.S.S.R. launched Sputnik I, a the blip of unknown origin was sighted by Dr Lincoln La Paz of the University of New Mexico.
As more reports of sightings trickled in from around the world, the U.S. Department of Defense appointed distinguished astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh to run a search for the mystery object. He had discovered Pluto in 1930. The blip became known as black knight.The Pentagon never formally released the results of Dr Tombaugh’s study.
And no more was heard about the object until December, 1957, when Dr Luis Corralos of the Communications Ministry in Venezuela photographed it. The first modern satellite, Sputnik I, had been launched two months earlier. Dr Corralos was taking pictures of Sputnik II as it passed over Caracas.
In 1957 black knight the blip of unknown origin was discovered in 1960 by a satellite. It was detected shadowing the sputnik 1 craft It was in a polar orbit, something that neither the Americans or Soviets were capable of at the time. This object was dubbed “The Black Knight. It was several times larger and several times heavier than anything capable of being launched with 1960 rockets. It shouldn’t have been there, but it was.
