    Last night I tried to catch LAGEOS 1 on one of its passes. I thought it
    would be a good opportunity, since the Moon was already under the horizon.
    However, I wasn't able to spot it at all. I was using 7x50 binoculars from
    a pretty dark observing site, so I have to wonder if its intrinsic
    brightness is actually a few magnitudes beyond the limitations of my
    instrument. After searching through several websites I haven't been able to
    confirm that, so I guess this is the perfect place to ask.
    
    Thanks in advance,
