I occasionally wonder what amateur astronomers who are scanning the
sky (maybe for comets or novae) would make of the sight of a short
illuminated line tracking steadily across the heavens.  A practical
answer occurred whilst looking for 7711201, for TiPs (9602906) entered
my field of view (see above).  Fortunately I was able to identify
it, but for anyone not well acquainted with this object, it must
present quite a surprise.
