    From time to time there have been reports of orange coloration when 
    observing the ISS.  I observed this myself some time ago, and reported it in 
    here.
    
    Barbara Morgan has stated that seen from the ISS the solar panels shimmered 
    as brightly as the filaments in a toaster, and were "shimmering bright 
    bright gold."
