The thing that surprised me the most was how BIG it appears to be in the
sky. What I could see with the naked eye
looked like 2 large squares, connected at the points. VERY inspiring!! I
wish I had taken my binoculars out with me.
I will be watching for other passes. Strange thing is, I didn't hear any
activity on 145.800. I figured I would
hear some kind of activity.
