    I'll add my two cents - my fondest memory of MIR was standing in the parking lot of my then employer, Concurrent Computer, in Oceanport, NJ in the late 80's/early 90's. MIR was passing overhead, and I was lucky enough to be chatting with the astro/cosmonauts on board via Amateur Radio. I saw them pass into Earth's shadow, and mentioned that "I bet you just had a lovely sunset." He was amazed that I knew that, and was amazed that I was watching them fly directly overhead.

    It's almost been 10 years, since Mir was deorbited.
    Video of it's re-entry.
    I only got to observe a few passes of it, none on video since I didn't have any video stuff back then.
