Skylab fell back to Earth on 11 July 1979 and while most of it fell into the sea, quite a bit of the debris rained down on the Western Australian town of Esperance and surrounding areas. Most of the pieces were found on a 160km wide strip of land between the Perth-Adelaide highway and the Indian Pacific railway line.
