I grew up in Queens N.Y.C. during the late ’50s and it was during this time I remember my father use to get his lawn chair and put it in our tiny driveway and gaze up at the stars. He used to point out to me (The sky was a bit more visible then due to the fact there was much less light and air pollution) a few of the visible constellations. But the main reason he was there was to show me the satellite whizzing by. He would somehow know when they would be passing overhead. They were only a tiny dot and from what I recall they moved quite rapidly since they were not in a very high orbit. To this day I have a very high appreciation for science and star gazing.
