There have been a number of messages here and other places about
spotting NEAR.  Some talk about determining the exact location of the
craft which would seem to indicate the glint will be hard to see.  

Other discussions, which have even made it into the press, talk about
going out this Thursday night / Friday morning and simply looking up and
seeing the craft with the naked eye.

Are these two separate events (or am I just very confused)?  :-)
