Nostradamus is quoted as saying

mankind would discover a machine in space that was sent to us

by the WATCHERS!
 

 

In 1899, Tesla developed a high-voltage, radio transmission equipment in Colorado Springs.

 

Tesla announced that he was receiving a electrical signal which appears to intelligent. The signal was clearly repeated periodically with such a clear suggestion of number and order. This lead him to believe that the signal was extraterrestrial communication with aliens. At first he assumed they were originating from Mars.

 

Later he changed that opinion and stated in one of his new conferences that the signal was coming from somewhere else in space. ¹


Does not surprise me that Tesla knew of communications from extra-terrestrials, and many thought him to be a lunatic. When in fact he invented many things the government has kept from the public.


A few years later, Guglielmo Marconi was intercepted a strange unknown artificial signal.
 


 

Then in March of 1960, another mysterious satellite was discovered orbiting earth.

 

This mystery satellite was in polar orbit feat that neither the US nor Russian were capable of at that time. The soviet satellites were inclined at 65 degree angle with the equator. It was calculated that the weight object to about 15 tons, which is far too heavy for rocket of that era. It also traveled twice as fast as any known satellite at the time. The object was sighted and studied by many of the astronomers across the country.

 

This is what Robert L. Johnson, director of the Adler Planetarium had to say about the object,

“‘THE OBJECT,’ JUDSON SAID, ‘DOESN’T EVEN HAVE THE DECENCY TO MAINTAIN A REGULAR SCHEDULE, LIKE ANY OTHER HEAVENLY OR MAN MADE OBJECT HE’S EVER SEEN.’

 

‘WE DON’T KNOW WHEN TO WATCH FOR IT’ he says.”

It appears some nights, and some nights it doesn’t.


It was then photographed by the Grumman Aircraft Corporation. The military attached so much importance to this mystery satellite that they created special committee to gather information and study the mystery satellite.

 

The committee’s findings were kept secret and the sightings were forgotten. That is still HAM operator intercepted a strange signal from this mystery satellite. The signal was later studied by Scottish astronomer Duncan Lunan.

 

The decoded massages show a star map centered on Epsilon Boötis as seen from the earth... years ago.
 

 

Is it possible that this is the same signal and object that both Tesla and Macroni intercepted?


In 1987 Shuttle Endeavour Mission STS-088 photographed a mysteries object orbiting the Earth. There are far below, 5 photos of the object on the NASA web site. It clearly shows a large orbit circling the Earth.

 

Is it possible that NASA inadvertently photographed the Black Knight satellite? Could this be the same object Gordon Cooper spotted over Australia while on its 22 orbit on board Faith 7?

 

Epsilon Boötis Star Chart

 

 

According to the source, by 2016, this probe/UFO will makes its path back into Earth’s orbit. Orbiting every 15-20 years. Also it took a corrective course to avoid collision with another asteroid.
 


 

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 Corrales of the Communications Ministry in Venezuela photographed it.

 

The first modern satellite, Sputnik I, had been launched two months earlier. Dr Corrales 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.


Time Magazine published this article on Monday, March 7th, 1960. But as you will notice, the newspapers have already begun censoring their news with a payment needed beforehand.

1960, February, North American Air Defense System (NORAD predecessor) detects object with a mass of 15 metric tons in Polar orbit. It is several times larger than anything the US or Soviets are capable of launching into orbit.

 

The object, dubbed “Black Knight,” is tracked for three weeks and abruptly disappears.

 

Ham radio operators once again report LDE phenomenon during this period.
 

Apollo X Gets Glimpse Of An Extraterrestrial Monolith In Space;

Later A Secret Military Space Shuttle Retrieves the Space Beacon
 

According to “Jesse”, in 1969 the Apollo 10 astronauts Stafford, Cernan and Young were the first to film an extraterrestrial space beacon, dubbed The Monolith, somewhat like, but smaller than, the one in Arthur C. Clarke’s book/movie “2001″.

 

They were not, however, the first astronauts to spot this ET beacon.

 

The Monolith was first sighted by Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, in 1961. He was followed into space that same year by American astronaut Alan Shephard, who also sighted the beacon. Apollo 10 went to it, and filmed it from every angle.

 

The Monolith acted like a communication beacon.

 

Jesse said,

“It sort of acts like the message received in the movie “Contact”. It had a message on it, in addition to a map of the extraterrestrial civilization which placed it there], and how to get to them.”

What is the “Black Knight” satellite?

 

It is a mysterious satellite, of unknown origin, discovered in 1960 which shadowed Sputnik. It is believed to have been of extraterrestrial origin, and signaled back old radio waves from the 1920s and 1930s before it disappeared.

 

In short wave patterns analyzed by astronomer Duncan Lunan, it revealed its origin as Epsilon Boötis (or the star system as it was 13,000 years ago).

 

Ham operators began receiving odd messages from the Black Knight.
 

 

One operator decoded a series of these messages as a star map.

 

The map centered on Epsilon Boötis as seen from the earth 13,000 years ago.

“In February 1960 the US detected an unknown object in polar orbit, a feat that neither they or the USSR had been able to accomplish. As if that wasn’t enough, it apparently was several sizes larger than anything either country would have been able to get off the ground."

And then, the oddness began.

 

HAM operators began to receive strange coded messages. One person in particular said he managed to decode one of the transmissions, and it corresponded to a star chart.

 

A star chart which would have been plotted from earth 13,000 years ago, and focused on the Epsilon Boötis star system.
 

 

On September 3, 1960, seven months after the satellite was first detected by radar, a tracking camera at Grumman Aircraft Corporation’s Long Island factory took a photograph of it.

 

People on the ground had been occasionally seeing it for about two weeks at that point. Viewers would make it out as a red glowing object moving in an east-to-west orbit. Most satellites of the time, according to what little material I’ve been able to find on the black knight satellite, moved from west-to-east. It’s speed was also about three times normal.

 

A committee was formed to examine it, but nothing more was ever made public.

Three years later, Gordon Cooper was launched into space for a 22 orbit mission. On his final orbit, he reported seeing a glowing green shape ahead of his capsule, and heading in his direction. It’s said that the Muchea tracking station, in Australia, which Cooper reported this too was also able to pick it up on radar traveling in an east-to-west orbit.

 

This event was reported by NBC, but reporters were forbidden to ask Cooper about the event on his landing. The official explanation is that an electrical malfunction in the capsule had caused high levels of carbon dioxide, which induced hallucinations.

The press labeled the object The Black Knight.

 

It was extensively discussed in the New York Times, Newsweek, Life, and other major periodicals. Since then, this amazing discovery has been buried in the fine print of NASA’s weekly catalogue of debris and objects orbiting the earth.

JM, a well-known U.S. Radio host.

 

He reported,

'I asked a friend with privileged access about the Black Knight.'

His surprised response:

How do you know about that? It’s highly classified. THREATENED WITH DEATH JM added, I have two of the three dimensions: 10 feet X 70 feet.

 

The PTB (Powers That Be) pretty much threaten death to anyone revealing what they know about this. This is one of the best kept secrets on the planet.

 

They use the usual techniques of compartmentalization, etc.


 

 

From the Newsday blurb 9/1/1960
(Newsday)

by Bob Caro


It’s not a satellite and it’s not a meteor. Any astronomer can tell you that. And he can tell you its color and, to some extent, its speed. [There's just one thing he can't tell you - what it is. He can't even guess.]

 

That’s the status at the moment of the,

”week-long nationwide attempt to identify the mysterious REDDISH object that has been circling the earth since last Thursday.”

Astronomers all over the country admit that they’re puzzled.

 

One, Frank Judson of Chicago’s famed Adler Planetarium says,

”I’ve been watching it for days and I don’t have the faintest idea what it is.”

Even taking a picture of the object hasn’t helped.

 

[The Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corp. announced yesterday that a tracking camera at the Bethpage plant had photographed the object at 8:51 PM last Thursday. But, a Grumman spokesman added, "all the picture shows is a white line, so we still can't even begin to make an identification."]

 

The white line, difficult to detect, was barely visible even after the photo was enlarged.


Expert observers and just plain citizens have been catching glimpses of the mysterious object in Long Island, Chicago, Washington, Boston, New Haven, Chicago and points west. But the few conclusions that they are able to draw about its behavior only heightens the mystery of what it is.
 

Judson, who has been studying the object in conjunction with Robert L. Johnson, director of the Adler Planetarium sums up the conclusions about the thing this way:

“It’s not a meteor because it’s much too slow. And it’s not an artificial man-made satellite”…

 

It wasn’t until the 1970’s that this mystery was carefully examined and deciphered by Duncan Lunan, a scientist from Scotland.

 

He plotted a vertical axis of the transmitted pulse sequence with a horizontal axis of echo delay time. The result? A picture of the constellation Boötis as it would look 15,000 years ago.


But that’s not all. There was a message hidden in the dots on his graph. Lunan was able to translate into simple English the meaning of these echo delay discrepancies, proving perhaps that they are a purposeful manipulation directed by a highly intelligent ‘other’.


The message is as follows:

START HERE.
OUR HOME IS EPSILON BOOTIS.
WHICH IS A DOUBLE STAR.
WE LIVE ON THE 6th PLANET OF 7 - CHECK THAT, 6th OF 7 -
COUNTING OUTWARDS FROM THE SUN
WHICH IS THE LARGER OF THE TWO.
OUR 6th PLANET HAS ONE MOON,
OUR 4th PLANET HAS THREE,
OUR FIRST AND THIRD PLANETS EACH HAVE ONE.
OUR PROBE IS IN THE ORBIT OF YOUR MOON
THIS UPDATES THE POSITION OF ARCTURUS SHOWN ON OUR MAPS.”

 

The most important component of the space watch went into operation about six months ago with the construction of “Dark Fence,” a kind of radar trip wire stretching across the width of the U.S.


So, we have an object of unknown origin which the governments of the world ‘allow’ in our atmosphere?

 

“Dark Fence” sounds like they know objects are there, and want to keep track of them!

 

 

 

HIGHBROW HARVARD PAPER on VG1991
from ADSABSHarvard Website

 

 


Apollo X Gets Glimpse Of An Extraterrestrial Monolith In Space
The Apollo 10 astronauts brought back the message captured on film.

 

The Monolith’s energy affected Apollo 10′s instrumentation, so that its crew almost didn’t get back. As soon as the film Apollo 10 took came back to Earth, those Intelligence compartments which deal with UFOs were busy poring over information from the Monolith.


The government then used an early secret military space shuttle to go get the Monolith itself. This covert military spacecraft flew years before the first “official” NASA Shuttle’s public flights in 1981. The spaceplane is operated by a secret military astronaut program out of Vandenburg Air Force Base, California, among other locations.

 

The second flight mission of this unacknowledged military shuttle retrieved the Monolith, and brought it back to Earth in 1972 for study.

After being retrieved, the Monolith was then transferred to a secret research facility. Scientific analysis of the Monolith was conducted at this domed underwater facility located north of Abaco, the northernmost of the Bahamas Islands.

 

RCA Corporation is in charge of that experimentation research, Jesse says.

 

Jesse stated,

“They did it underwater, after they saw people dropping like flies. They figured that there would be better containment [of the Monolith's suspected cosmic energy emanations] underwater.”

He noted that the space beacon,

“has a sound to it, like it talks. It also gives off a light show.”

Dr. Michael Wolf shed additional light on the beacons.

“They are ‘postcards from the rim’. They emit both light and tone signals, sending a mathematical language. There may be five or more ET civilizations involved in setting up these beacons.”
 

Could this be ancient pictogram of BLACK KNIGHT?
 

Among the scientists who worked on it were famed astronomer Dr. Carl Sagan, U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command General Albert Stubblebine, (ret.), National Security Council consultant Dr. Michael Wolf, and a former division head of CIA.

 

Everyone who had prolonged close physical contact with the Monolith got cancer, Jesse says.

“And those who tried to dissect it [the Monolith] died right there on the spot.”

The CIA Counter-Intelligence official and Dr. Wolf got colon cancer. The CIA man required surgery, but Dr. Wolf’s cancer later went into a spontaneous remission.

 

Dr. Sagan eventually died of his cancer.


NSC’s Dr. Michael Wolf has previously revealed in his book The Catchers of Heaven that he worked with ETs as part of his governmental duties.

“I met with extraterrestrial individuals every day in my work, and shared living quarters with them,” while doing research at extremely - classified - underground government research laboratories.

He added,

“Zetas work in underground facilities, as requested by the U.S. Government. The ETs are not breaking the U.S. Government-Zeta treaties, but the Government has broken treaties by mistreating ETs, and trying to fire on UFOs.”

Dr. Wolf also described working with very human-appearing races dubbed the Nordics and Semitics.

 

He said,

“The Semitics and Nordics [ETs] come from Altair 4 and 5 and from the Pleiades [star systems].”

Wolf also disclosed that in 1954 the U.S. had four extraterrestrial corpses in the “Blue Room”, Hanger 18 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio.

 

These bodies came from a series of retrievals of downed UFOs.

“The first UFO came down in 1941 into the ocean west of San Diego, and was retrieved by the Navy.”

Between that and the first publicly-announced Roswell UFO crash in 1947, Wolf says there was another crash in 1946, as well as two other crashes in 1947.


Many should take notice that these ‘aliens’ come from Orion. They are the Ascended Masters which people are now channeling and connecting with on a daily basis! This is not something people should take lightly!

 

They are 'demons'! Demons in disguise!
 

 

 

 


Philip K. Dick

1928-1982

 

Dick is probably best known to the public for writing the stories on which the movies Blade Runner (1982), Total Recall (1990), and Screamers (1996) were based.

 

Before the movies, there were the books. That’s where we’ll find Dick’s own encounter with a Black Knight.

Beginning in February of 1974, Dick had a series of “mystic” experiences (substitute “paranormal” or “fortean” or “psychotic” if you like). When he died eight years later, he was still unsure of their origin or their meaning. Left behind was what he called the Exegesis, an 8000-page, one-million-word continuing dialogue with himself written late, late at night.

 

This is where we go to find the Black Knight’s return. Very little of Dick’s Exegesis has been published.

 

The Black Knight material formed the core of four novels:

  • Radio Free Albemuth

  • VALIS

  • The Divine Invasion

  • The Transmigration of Timothy Archer

They remain in print.

 

All four read as autobiography. The pivotal element in each is Dick’s own contact with the Black Knight, which he called the Vast Active Living Intelligence System, VALIS for short.

 

In a series of visions and coincidences, VALIS revealed itself to Dick as an ancient satellite from another world. It was sent here long ago by three-eyed, crab-clawed beings from a planet orbiting Fomalhaut.

 

They built our civilization, taught us writing and science, then returned to their own world. VALIS was left behind to prod certain individuals when civilization needed a boost. If it sounds like Von Däniken meets Scientology, read on.


Albemuth is the name Dick gave Fomalhaut in Radio Free Albemuth.

 

I believe he derived it from the Arabic al-Behemoth, which he took to mean “whale.” Fomalhaut is the fish’s mouth in the constellation of Piscis Australis, the Southern Fish.

 

In VALIS he moved its origin to Sirius, probably after reading Robert K.G. Temple’s The Sirius Mystery. He also offered an alternate name for the satellite: Zebra. He called it Zebra because of its ability to mimic its surroundings.

 

We’ll discuss that in a moment, when we return to LDEs.

 

Dick’s contact began with a vision of St. Elmo’s Fire filling his apartment.

 

It was a strange pink flame which burned but did not consume. He says his cat saw it too. It was strongest at night. Dick would lie in bed unable to sleep, watching the light show. He compared it to a rapid-fire succession of modern paintings by the likes of Klee and Kandinsky.

 

At one point he wondered if Soviet scientists were working with the aliens on psychotronics experiments. He thought they might be beaming images at him from a Moscow Museum.

 

His dreams during this period took on a whole new nature, so much so that he began referring to them as tutelary dreams because of their information-rich content. He experienced numerous waking visions as well.


In some of his visions, Dick saw Soviet scientists rushing around behind the scenes to keep the alien satellite functioning. Strange texts which appeared to be Russian operating manuals were held up for him to see. The Builders, as he came to call the aliens, were sometimes seen floating in large vats of water, observing the operation.

 

The whole complex system was apparently set up solely for his benefit!


Dick saw VALIS as a benign entity. He saw its position as teacher, sometimes protectress. (I say “protectress” rather than “protector” because VALIS reminded Dick of his twin sister Jane, who died in infancy.)

 

He credited VALIS with taking charge of his life, recovering a lot of income due from unpaid royalties, and even re-margining his typewriter.


While listening to the radio one day, Dick heard the words of the Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” change to a warning from VALIS:

“Your son has an undiagnosed right inguinal hernia. The hydrocele has burst, and it has descended into the scrotal sac. He requires immediate attention, or will soon die.”

Dick rushed him to the hospital and found every word to be true.

 

The doctor scheduled the operation for the same day.


Dick occasionally heard other, less positive messages from his radio at night, even when it was turned off. Admittedly, hearing voices and claiming harassment from an energy beam are symptoms of mental illness, but there seems to be something more at work here.

 

Anybody can claim crazy, incredible things, but only Philip K. Dick produced works of art because of it. In the end, though, he may have overexposed himself to it.

 

As he hinted in VALIS, too much of a good thing can kill you.
 


 

Dick had another vision.

 

He saw the pink St. Elmo’s fire coalesce into a door perfectly proportioned to the Golden Mean. Through the door he saw ancient Greece, or some other Mediterranean land.

 

He later regretted never stepping through it. This brings us full circle to the subject of Long Delay Echoes. As Dick sat staring at the Y in an ICHTHYS sticker in his window one afternoon, he pondered these strange occurrences. As he did, he saw first-century Rome fade in and remain superimposed on top of 1974 California. The experience lasted through February and March.

 

He still knew which was the vision and which was real, but when he looked away and then looked back, Rome was still there.


The message he decided VALIS was sending him is that we still live in Roman times.

 

Nothing has changed, we still live under the rule of a cruelly corrupt empire, and the Christian apocalypse is near. VALIS predicted the downfall of a King. Nixon left office soon after.

 

As Dick said in VALIS,

“The Empire Never Ended.”

This catch-phrase was made known to him in one of his tutelary dreams.


If this concept of one “reality” superimposed onto another is difficult to conceptualize, let’s consider a parallel from more orthodox (!) sources. Without trying to establish or deny its validity, the field of psychic archeology tries to do exactly what Dick had happen to him. This is akin to remote viewing with a time element involved, rather than one of space.

 

This author is in possession of a small number of unpublished correspondence describing others’ experiences of this phenomenon. One called the satellite “Max.”

 

Dick was not the only one.
 

 

Though Dick’s vision of Rome faded, his tutelary dreams continued for six more years.

 

So did the AI voice (Artificial Intelligence), a soft feminine voice he heard in times of stress and during hypnagogic revery. This was the aspect of VALIS which reminded him of his late twin sister Jane. He claimed to have first heard it during a high school physics exam (it gave him the answers) 25 years earlier.

 

During the VALIS days it told him,

“The Head Apollo is about to return. St. Sophia is going to be born again; she was not acceptable before. The Buddha is in the park. Siddhartha sleeps (but is going to awaken). The time you have waited for has come.”

It’s in The Exegesis. Dick quoted it in VALIS.


It all appeared to end November 17, 1980. Dick claimed to have had a theophany that day, though witnesses noticed nothing unusual. Dick suddenly comprehended God as infinite, by nature incomprehensible. In other words, the Exegesis would never solve anything because there was no answer to be had.

 

Dick actually stopped writing for a time because of this, but was at it again before too long. It was the search that was important to him, after all. He wrote The Divine Invasion around this time, which was when the voice finally stopped.


Dick persisted in speculating for the remaining year of his life, and managed to produce one more novel before the end - the posthumously-published The Transmigration of Timothy Archer.

 

Dick suffered the first of several strokes in February 1982 and died a few days later in the hospital, on March 2.

 

He was 53.
 

 

 

On January 31, Dark Fence detected two passes of what seemed to be an unknown space object.

 

After detecting several passes during the following days, Captain W.E. Berg, commanding officer of Dark Fence, decided that something was circling overhead on a roughly polar orbit. He raced to the Pentagon and in person reported the menacing stranger to Chief of Naval Operations Arleigh Burke.

 

Within minutes the news was communicated to President Eisenhower and marked top secret.

Black Knight Satellite
1960 Encounter
Space Watch's First Catch

March 07, 1960
from TheLivingMoon Website

 

 

Black Knight Passing Jupiter
 

 

Three weeks ago, headlines announced that the U.S. had detected a mysterious "dark" satellite wheeling overhead on a regular orbit.

 

There was nervous speculation that it might be a surveillance satellite launched by the Russians, and it brought the uneasy sensation that the U.S. did not know what was going on over its own head. But last week the Department of Defense proudly announced that the satellite had been identified.

 

It was a space derelict, the remains of an Air Force Discoverer satellite that had gone astray.

 

The dark satellite was the first object to demonstrate the effectiveness of the U.S.'s new watch on space. And the three-week time lag in identification was proof that the system still lacks full coordination and that some bugs still have to be ironed out.
 

 


First Sighting

The most important component of the space watch went into operation about six months ago with the construction of "Dark Fence," a kind of radar trip wire stretching across the width of the U.S. Designed by the Naval Research Laboratory to keep track of satellites whose radios are silent, it is a notable improvement on other radars, which have difficulty finding a small satellite unless they know where to look.

 

Big, 50-kw. transmitters were established at Gila River, near Phoenix, Ariz, and Jordan Lake, Ala., spraying radio waves upward in the shape of open fans. Some 250 miles on either side, receiving stations pick up signals that bounce off any object passing through the fans.

 

By a kind of triangulation, the operators can make rough estimates of the object's speed, distance and course.

On Jan. 31 Dark Fence detected two passes of what seemed to be an unknown space object. After detecting several passes during the following days, Captain W.E. Berg, commanding officer of Dark Fence, decided that something was circling overhead on a roughly polar orbit. He raced to the Pentagon and in person reported the menacing stranger to Chief of Naval Operations Arleigh Burke.

 

Within minutes the news was communicated to President Eisenhower and marked top secret.

In the confusion, there was a delay before anyone took the step necessary to positively identify the strange satellite: informing the Air Force's newly established surveillance center in Bedford, Mass. It is the surveillance center's job to take all observations on satellites from all friendly observing centers, both optical and electronic, feed them into computers to produce figures that will identify each satellite, describe its orbit and predict its behavior.

 

Says one top official, explaining the cold facts of the space age:

"The only way of knowing that a new satellite has appeared is by keeping track of the old ones."

It took two weeks for Dark Fence's scientists to check back through their taped observations, and to discover that the mysterious satellite had first showed up on Aug. 15.

 

The Air Force surveillance center also checked its records to provide a list of everything else that was circling in the sky, and its computers worked out a detailed description of the new object's behavior.

 

The evidence from both Air Force and Navy pointed to Discoverer V, fired from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif, on Aug. 13.
