4. The Black Knight
The Black Knight satellite has been the subject of conspiracy theories ever since 1998, when NASA’s Apollo 17 spacecraft first photographed the object. Later, authorities claimed that it was merely an unrecorded piece of space debris. However, no one has been able to locate the Black Knight in Earth’s orbit ever since.
5. Skunk Ape
Even though the photos are blurry, experts were able to determine one thing – the mysterious animal has a set of features that doesn’t correspond to any known species.
During the summer of 2000, the Sarasota County (Florida) Sheriff’s Dept. received an anonymous letter containing photos of an unidentified ape-like creature. The woman who sent them was convinced that she found an escaped orangutan. She described seeing it steal fruit from her porch and asked the Police to get back to the zoo safely.
There are people who believe the Skunk Ape is hiding out somewhere outside of Sarasota to this day. And even those who don’t love the mysterious creature for driving tourists to their little town, or as they now call it “Skunk Ape Territory.”
