    Hi
    "We" observed the ISS today in daylight unaided. At 0150UT with the Sun 0.7
    d above the horizon and a 86 d high pass. I wanted to try and locate it
    without any aid like binos. My wife Suzanne easily spotted it after if
    passed the zenith and about 70-60 d high. I never could lock onto it. :) She
    said it was very easy to see and followed it for at least a minute and I
    looked "up her arm" but still never caught it. 
    So, I don't know how many people have spotted it in sunshine with no optical
    aid first but there it is.
