Saw it too, first through my 10x50, then throuh the C5. I suspected I had glimpsed it in the 6x30 finder; after some more dark-adaptation I confirmed it: it shows in a 30mm under city skies, helped by a large bout of very dry air, the first in weeks.
People, definitely go for it, it's very easy under any skies with any instrument.
