    I lived in North Central Oklahoma in the early 1970s. The local newspaper published a satellite timetable listing time, direction of travel and how high off the horizon to watch. It was the most exciting thing to happen after dark in Enid, OK. It was the only exciting thing to happen after dark in Enid.

    Just watched the Space Station make a pass. Perfect night and timing. Looked like a Buick going over at a hundred feet.

So yes, we watch the sky a bit. In fact, we are going to the McDonald Observatory on Monday night to a star party of sorts.
