    Hello,
    
    I have checked on a cple of web sites that say the shuttle will be "viewable" at certan times on certain days.  I live in lower NY state above NYC and it turns out that all these viewable times are from 7-9 am.  
    
    Pls help my confusion on a cple of points. 
    
    * does "viewable" mean to the naked eye?
    * since it wil be during sun hrs will it still be posible to view the STS?
    * I have an 8" Meade Telescope.  Any suggestions on using it for daytime viewing of the STS?
    
    Thank u in advance for any help/pointers you can give me.
