To respond to Bill Bard's note:

I verified moments ago that indeed 4 cargo bay lights were on between 1100 
and 1205 GMT today, in addition to the cabin lights. So the overall 
brightness of the orbiter was no doubt due to the cargo bay illumination. It 
is up to the crew's discretion as to when to turn these lights on and off. 
The SFU grapple is now scheduled to occur very close to the nominal plan.
