    No, the floodlights were not on. One funny thing is that while you were looking
    for it from the ground, I was looking at NASA TV where we had a live picture
    with the array in darkness filmed by a low light camera and we could see very
    clearly the lights of cities on the ground. So I was watching you from space :-)
    
    The deployment, now scheduled at around 01:00 UT, will occur in daylight with
    the end occuring in darkness where maybe the floodlights could be on.
