    Tonight I decide to use my 10*50 binoculars to observe milstar 6. I put them on a tripod.
    
    I could easily see it, as it passed near a star located near
    
    19 h 40 m R.A
    - 5 deg 26 min
    
    So a time of approx 6:44 UTC ( July 7 ).
    
    It so nice to see a geo sat in binoculars.
    
    Go Milstar !
