Is a secret ballot at the end of the Impeachment trial no longer possible?

A few weeks ago, there was speculation that a majority vote (50 Dems and the VP) could order that the final vote be by secret ballot. Several articles pointed out that this win for the Dems could also be a boon for the GOP, since they could remove Trump from future contention while not having to acknowledge their individual vote. Some articles even speculated that a genuine secret vote could get 80 plus votes, meaning a majority of the R's.
I haven't heard any speculation on this since the trial began, so my assumption is that this would have needed to be in the original agreement on conducting the proceedings.
Anyone have any ideas if this could still be a possibility, albeit very much a long-shot?

Question about Impeachment trial

Canít find a google answer: Is the Senate going to skip Saturday as requested by one of Trumpís lawyers who says he is an Orthodox Jew and canít work from sundown Friday through Saturday?

I know theyíre saying now that the trial will last at least till Monday.
