I've been waiting for a chance to observe this, we have a high pass early next week :smiley-dance017: From reports it is nice and bright, anyone else seen it yet?

Hi all,

Nice and cool this morning but I Just had to have a look for this new space plane. X-37b burst into the sunlight at around 5:09am this morning very close to the morning moon which was almost straight over head. I was able to view it from then until it went below the horizon at 5:13am. Heavens above predicted it's brightness to be 4.8 mag which was just about right. It was bright but with the Moon light it was not so easy to catch with a camera. Attached is a photo that I managed to get, but I had to adjust the contrast to see X-37b in frame.

Mick...:peace2:
