I voted "A just-distinguishable oval"
because it was the closest thing I could find to a fuzzy dot. It's barely visible to the unaided eye on the best of nights.
I should have read the first post before voting, as I thought the question was about how big it appears to the unaided eye. I would still have gotten it wrong, though. I had no idea it occupied that much of the night sky's real estate.
