visibility



I have been asked a question about visibility of a satellite in orbit.

Would anyone care to comment as to how easy it would be to see a microsat
perhaps 600x600x600mm cube (that's a 2 foot cube in some parts of the world)
in a 600km sun synchronous orbit, assuming four faces are 50% at least
covered with solar cells.

Thanks
