    Hey All,
         Saw AM-11 at 7:02:00 UT at RA: 15hr 39min Dec:
    -5.5deg at about +3.0mag. I believe this is the most
    distant manmade object I have ever seen with the naked
    eye. Just curious if others have seen naked eye
    objects farther? AM-11 is clearly in a more distant
    (graveyard orbit) orbit than geosynchronous.
    
         Regards,
