Is the 'Black Knight' really an ET satellite?

Betteridge's law of headlines is an adage that states: "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no." It is named after Ian Betteridge, a British technology journalist who wrote about it in 2009, although the principle is much older.

I love the Black Knight myth. It's such a compelling story. For that reason alone, it'll never go away, IMO.
All the best "It's Aliens!" tales are exactly that, good tales to tell.

The photo is great too. I can imagine it being an oddly asymmetrical and ancient device. With no judge of scale, I can also imagine it any size I want...From 1-100 meters tall/long easily.

Isn't it a blanket?

That's what I've read as the official explanation. I have no reason to doubt it...Still though, I have a soft spot for this whole story. I got into reading about it a while back (not believing it's true, of course) and did several drawings and paintings of it.

I remember being really curious about it when I first read about it. It would be an awesome story and an unbelievable discovery if true. I've watched a few "documentaries" on it as well. There was even a time I held onto the belief that the picture was of a blanket and people just mistook it for the Black Knight and it was actually somewhere else up there.

Well, there are approx. 2k satellites orbiting Earth at LEO level, so the space agencies and satellite companies would know the trajectory of such an object very well but have we heard of? No, because there is no such object.

I also love this story and how the picture looks like the Batmobile. If you look at the other photos though it is obviously a thermal blanket or other space debris. I don't believe we have a satellite watching us other than ones humans put up there. I would like to point out if there was such an advanced satellite by a super advanced space travelling Alien race we would probably never be able to detect it. I am not saying i think it is impossible that there are space travelling alens or that we won't be some day I am just staying skeptical but open minded.
