"As you will have noticed" implies that the person has indeed noticed, so it does equal "must have" in a way. However, I would caution you using "must have", as it could be perceived as a little rude in this sentence depending on how you say it. Also: "Most people wouldn't have seen last night's lunar eclipse."
