"STS 66 Observed in Daylight!
----------------------------
Russell Eberst reports observing STS 66 in daylight:

"ON NOVEMBER 6 AT 16.15 U.T. ATLANTIS WAS SEEN IN 11x80 BINOCULARS
WITH THE SUN STILL ABOVE THE HORIZON. LOCAL SUNSET WAS 16.24 U.T.
NO POSITIONAL OBSERVATIONS POSSIBLE DUE TO LACK OF REFERENCE STARS!"

That is quite a feat."
