I relay an observation by Rob H. Mcnaught

TSS was very nice.  About 1 deg long, just visible to the naked-eye in the
twilight at 8 deg elevation due north.  In binocs there was a mag 6 point
at the top end.  The (un)tether was only very slightly curved, but I
can't be sure which way.  I think it was concave forward.  In a dark sky
with good phase angle, this will be awesome.  It was pretty bloody
impressive in 10x50Bs low in the twilight at over 1000 km!
