    Probably not so off-topic at all. Satellites in lunar orbit have actually
    been observed from Earth with (larger) telescopes, most notably one of the
    Lunar Orbiters (I have a photo of the obs somewhere, scan available on
    request). IIRC it had to be maneuvered to produce a bit of a flare off of
    its solar panels, I suppose it would have been way too faint otherwise, but
    hey, it worked.
