    Based on the following data and looking at the spacecraft at the site listed
    below, I am amending my analysis.   I did NOT see the light reflected from
    the 250 m antennaes.  They are very thin wire like and unlikely to reflect
    much light.
    
    My timings are consistent with an octogon of solar cells rotating at 0.5 rpm.
