I recently saw it through a telescope, it was nothing specially bright, 
in fact i was rather disapointed when i first saw this object...its 
probably in the mag 3-6 area....(3 is being way optimistic)
i'm sure if you got a good sun glint it could get pretty bright...

i dont recall seeing it naked eye but it also wasnt an overhead pass i saw...
