    Picked up a copy of sky and telescope today, so I could read the article on geo sat's. Only thing, is the author was talking about how you can see them, with binocular's are a telescope around the equinox. But some can be seen with just the eye around the equinox time. 
    But then there's other times in the year, such as when there's a nice antena flare's from Intelsat 1R and Galaxy 11, and they can be seen with just the eye.
