    Good evening
    I havent done an accurate check but looking at the ground track of Vostok 1 
    you certainly would not have been able to track it optically as the flight 
    was in daylight in that part of the world and probably passed too far to the 
    east of Greece to clear the horizon as it neared the end of its flight.
    Launch occurred at about 06h07m UT and it landed 07h55mUT.
    The flight is discussed in more detail, along with the ground track at
    Seesat-l mailing list
