[*] In 1973 a Scottish astronomy and science fiction author, Duncan Lunan, wrote that he had “identified and deciphered a hidden radio message” in outer space radio emissions that predate human existence in outer space.
[*] Lunan says the deciphered message said, “Start here. Our home is Upsilon Bootes, which is a double star. We live on the sixth planet of seven, coming from the sun, which is the larger of the two. Our sixth planet has one moon. Our fourth planet has three. Our first and third planets each have one. Our probe is in the position of Arcturus, known in our maps.”
[*] Upsilon Boötis is a real star in the constellation called Boötes.
[*] Lunan argued that the message originated from a planet that orbited another star in the Boötes constellation, Epsilon Boötis.
[*] Some people believe all of these events can be explained by a non-organic, non-humanmade object called the Black Knight satellite that is believed to have been orbiting earth for 13,000 years.
[*] Right now, more than 100,000 other satellites are orbiting Earth. (A satellite is any object placed intentionally into an orbit in outer space. The moon is technically a satellite, so sometimes the phrasing used is “artificial satellite” vs “natural satellite”). The Black Knight satellite is believed to be an artificial satellite, just not one with human origins.
[*] One theory suggests that the origin of the Black Knight satellite isn’t alien but actually an ancient human creation. The idea here is that an ancient race of humans (or other intelligent, non-human animals on Earth) were scientifically advanced and launched the satellite before becoming extinct.
