# When will the telescope that last saw Starman/Roadster be able to see it again?

According to this answer to When was the last time that Starman/Roadster was seen? it was last seen by Earthlings at least at 2018-03-19 03:22:33 UTC by a 1 meter telescope in South Africa.

1. Based on known albedo and trajectory, when could Roadster be potentially detectable again by this telescope?
2. At that time of year, will Roadster's position be viewable at night from this location?
• Who you calling an "Earthling" ? :-) – Carl Witthoft Apr 21 '20 at 11:55

• I'm curious, how far was Starman when it was last seen? It was launched on 2018-02-06 and last seen about forty days later. Neglecting angles and the position of the Sun for a minute, when would it be that same distance again? – uhoh Apr 21 '20 at 12:00
