    Low elevation sunlight could also tint the sat orange.

    Subject: Phobos Grunt orange coloration
    
    Two people (including myself) have reported an orange tint of Phobos Grunt
    on high elevation passes this week.  I have not seen anything on a few
    pictures of the spacecraft that would explain this color.
    
    Any explanations?
