So, we all know the Black Knight hypothesis: it’s either a piece of debris, like a thermal blanket , or it’s an ET sentinel. Can anyone debunk this footage. Looks hokey but I have a budddy why says it’s legit.
Otherwise, I have no opinion on the matter.
Reported by who? Donald Keyhoe, in his book? Exactly what is the "evidence" for this, a "signal" from orbit? I don't know how well it was understood in 1953 that if you aim a radio antenna out into space, that it can pick up some signals from the Earth even though it's not aimed at the Earth. For example:

In 1953 when the black knight was first reported, no one had a "public" space program. It was all classified military projects like the Project Horizon 1959 moon mission.
A mysterious signal that appeared to be emanating from the closest star to our own sun put scientists on a nearly yearlong hunt to track down its origin...
"It is human-made radio interference from some technology, probably on the surface of the Earth," Sofia Sheikh, an astronomer at the University of California, Berkeley, and a co-author of both papers, told Nature.com. NPR tried to reach Sheikh but was unsuccessful.
What I'd like to know is exactly what evidence do you have that makes you think there's a "Black Knight" satellite (or was in 1953) even if it's not close? How good is the evidence?
However any thing is possible so who knows really. Unless we can get an unmanned space drone to get close and record it on video, we may never know.
Another story dating back to the early 1950s claimed to refer to an apparition of the Black Knight reports the detection of a signal of by an object in orbit. ...However, the articles (were) actually a couple of synopses of a book by the UFOlogical author Donald Keyhoe (1897-1988). I’m sure these promotional newspaper articles had been great for sales of the book!
Keyhoe’s claim was picked up by the San Francisco Examiner and St. Louis Post Dispatch. According to the articles, Keyhoe said that the Secretary of the Air Force, Harold Talbott, was aware of the satellites and had even witnessed a ‘silvery, disc-shaped object’ in the sky. Though, Talbott dismissed these claims.

[yawn] Space blanket lovers seem content to keep pretending it's an alien vehicle. Why is that not surprising?
