I first saw Skylab fly overhead in mid-1970s (the converted S-IV stage was about as bright as ISS) ... the wonder near changes.
I just had to share this.
I got out of bed early Sunday morning to catch a high elevation ISS pass. WOW!
It was the brightest thing in the sky - directly over head passing NW to SE.
I do miss Oscar 6 and 7 ... I largely listened to those birds .. since I was finishing high school and starting college at that time.
I did hear Oscar 7 the other day -- still operating when in sunlight.
