    Regarding reflections of solar cells, as I think it has been stated before,
    the maximum brightness is when the solar panels are flat towards you and
    the sun is behind you. As the flat side of the solar panels start pointing
    away from you, the brightness decreases, but the panels are still normally
    quite visible until you look at them edge on. How visible they are is
    dependent on the angle and their reflectance (I think that's the term).
