The photo evidence that isn't evidence
Sometimes the introduction of a news report will stop you in your tracks, forcing you to reread in fear you didn't quite grasp its point the first time. That was certainly the case when Mail Online published a story on Mar. And with that, the conspiracy surrounding the so-called "Black Knight" satellite appeared to be very much alive.
Historical evidence that also isn't evidence
The Black Knight satellite conspiracy theory claims that there is a spacecraft in near- polar orbit of the Earth that is of extraterrestrial origin, and that NASA is engaged in a cover-up regarding its existence and origin. A photo taken during the STS mission claimed by some to show the Black Knight satellite is catalogued by NASA as a photo of space debris,  and space journalist James Oberg considers it as probable debris of a thermal blanket confirmed as lost during the mission. According to some UFO conspiracists, the Black Knight is an artificial satellite of extraterrestrial origin which has orbited Earth for approximately 13, years; the "satellite" story is most likely a conflation of several disconnected stories about various objects and their interpretations,  all of them well documented independently and none using the term "Black Knight" upon their first publication. Black Knight is a jumble of completely unrelated stories; reports of unusual science observations, authors promoting fringe ideas, classified spy satellites and people over-interpreting photos. These ingredients have been chopped up, stirred together and stewed on the internet to one rambling and inconsistent dollop of myth. At that time, no country had the technology to launch a satellite.
Anecdotes vs a much larger sample size. If so, then step away from the internet and go look him in the eyes and take his hands and start asking him all the questions you asked me. I would probably suggest that you cut your losses now.
