    You can see a picture of an ISS solar array in a laboratory on Earth:

    It seems like when the viewer is directly opposite the shining of light
    on the solar array, the color is gold.  But when the angle of light is
    different, then the color resembles blue.  Thought this would be relevant
    to recent conversation.
    You can see a close-up of a milstar solar panel, and why it can appear to
    be both gold-colored and blue-colored.
    Another good ISS solar panel picture at:
