Did you see the strange lights in the sky on Friday evening? (videos above)

Astronomer Jonathan McDowell tweeted that the lights were likely space debris that reentered the Earth’s atmosphere around 9:30 p.m.

Are we sure it’s not more communist China spying above us again? ( and that the current Administration is not doing much about)

You must be as old as I am . Don’t think Heathkit has been around in years. I still have one in my garage three quarters done and over fifty five years old. Was going great guns on it right up until the first kid was born.

@RICARDOH..โ€ฆ.I put together a couple of Heathkits in my day, 55 years ago is about when I put my last one together. My Dad and I contemplated doing a color TV kit but never got around to it. They are still in business.

Love it. My Grandfather built a Heathkit AM/FM Mulitplex for my folks, and a very powerful Heathkit stereo receiver back when most people used tube amps. He built a Thomas Organ kit for my grandmother and also built a solar powered car for me activated by a flashlight. That was back when people dared to build things themselves. I’m sure he would have been fascinated by today’s technology, but probably a little sad that all today’s kids know how to do is push buttons.
And then there were the Cox airplanes and cars………

@THE FEARLESS SPECTATOR…..Funny you mention the Cox airplane thing. I used to enjoy just putting my Cox nitromethane plane engine in a vice and just run it until it was out of fuel. I probably got more enjoyment out of that than trying to fly the plane. I still have it in my stuff, still looks new even.

but me in the old column too. Here is what Wiki says:
.
Is Heathkit still in business?
The company announced in 2011 that they were reentering the kit business after a 20-year hiatus but then filed for bankruptcy in 2012, and under new ownership began restructuring in 2013. As of 2022, the company has a live website with newly designed products, services, vintage kits, and replacement parts for sale.

yup, I’m old. I remember when Dr’s didn’t wear masks and dentists did not wear gloves (1970″s). Then Aids came along and we fell into the stupid years. Now we think masks save us all…..stupid. anyway Heathkit is still alive although dying a slow death. https://shop.heathkit.com/shop
