Very nice sight from 20th St. and Baseline in the 10 X 50's.

Very easy to discern the shape of the balloon, but no payload package is 
visable to me.

At abouit 25 degrees and shining brighter than Venus at full phase.

Rats. I'm in Phoenix for a day and didn't think I would be able to see it.
I went outside and there it was, slightly to the NW about 30 deg high. I
don't have any telescope stuff with me, but I notified a neighbor about
the event. The had some nice binoculars. It was really neat.
