Does anyone know anything about and secret space telescopes? Hubble is widely know but if the government was highly interested in anything from space, UFO's, aliens, etc.. I would think they would have their own equipment looking for it.

The NRO have dozens of classified satellites in orbit. Just google on "secret NRO satellites" or 'vandenberg secret launch'. The airforce launches quite a lot of them.

I'm sure they also have a few aimed into space, instead of onto earth

We have a bunch of spy satellites which are like the Hubble just facing the Earth.

They wouldnt be secret if we knew about them, just to let you know.

You might like to check out DSP satellites and their occasional "glimpses of so called "Fast Walkers"?


Quote:

""But what makes this particular Fast Walker so peculiar," says Stefula, "is that it comes in from outer space on a curved trajectory, passes within three kilometers of the satellite platform, and then disappears back into space. Whatever it is, it was tracked for nine minutes."

Taken from here though searching should find other sources.

Whilst not designed to specifically look into "outer space", but are part of the defence system (for detecting infra-red sources as pre-warning of missile launches, they *might* fit into your research?


Happy surfing!

they're nothing like hubble... they're significantly smaller, and don't take pictures in such a wide spectrum.

As cmdrkeenkid said. You can't have telescopes like hubble looking towards Earth or any near object because it is far sighted. The same would go for any satillite that looks towards Earth, it will not do a good job looking out into space.

But maybe there are some secret telescopes specificly designed to look out into space, but I don't know what that would do for them really.
