Most of you probably haven't heard of the Black Knight satellite. For a quick crash course:
- Object was discovered in 1957 with the launch of Sputnik. - Object is in a polar orbit - Object was dubbed "Black Knight" by NASA - Object allegedly contained star map to the Epsilon Bootes star system
Two schools of thought on this one:
A.) It is an artifact launched by an ancient earth civilization containing information about where the ancient civilization went (Epsilon Bootes).
B.) It is a device manufactured by an extra-terrestrial civilization sent here as a message.
Both theories are intriguing. What's great is NASA has been mum on this topic of interest for the past 40+ years.
Recent photograph from NASA, photo was taken down from NASA's website after an accidental posting a couple of days ago.

Side note: The batmobile sold at the Barrett-Jackson auto auction on Saturday for over $4.5M. The guy who sold it was told by an appraiser that he'd be lucky to get $200K out of it. The guy who bought it is putting it in his living room or something ridiculous like that.
