    Hi Phil,
    Yes , its hard to tell what is ...and what isnt L5
    I notice in your VRML you indicate Lac 3 may have dual arrays .......One of 
    the things that confused me about my image was that I thought I could also 
    see "twin" solar panels......which may have been partially deployed  between 
    your capture on the 1st ...and mine on the 5th.
    We could do with someone else taking some pics to see what they get :O)
