That's exciting, Jerry.  I can't stress enough how important it is to make sure you hear the bird before transmitting.  Today, one station was on AO-27 over the eastern USA calling CQ repeatedly (KK4??? / call protected to hide the guilty).  Many stations were trying to call him but it quickly became apparent he wasn't receiving.  The birds do fly by quickly.  The seven minutes of AO-27 time is very precious!
