Steve is now installing cover 17 on the starboard SARJ, sunrise in 18 minutes.

Complex is passing SE over the Indian Ocean during the ZOE.

What's the difference between the autotrack test and the SARJ rotation they plan to do during EVA?

The port SARJ will probably not be tracking the sun exactly (although from MCC comments the angle may be reasonably close - they were hurrying up Shane to get clear for that reason!)

They may rotate at the normal autotrack rate if this is a good opportunity to charge the batteries.

The Starboard SARJ autotrack test will be overnight at the correct rate and I assume pointing the array correctly at the sun (but they will only do two orbits' worth).

Shane dropping off the dummy camera box he just removed in the Air lock and at the same time picking up the new TV camera.

Ducking in the airlock during sunrise:
And this is a good reminder that just because one of your fellow space enthusiasts occasionally voices doubts about the SpaceX schedule announcements or is cautious about believing SpaceX has licked a problem before actually seeing proof that's true, it doesn't mean they hate SpaceX.

Complex is moving SE of Western Australia, expect to lose KU through West in about 10 minutes as the complex moves south and east of New Zealand, similar to the last orbit.

50 minutes to sunset, and 50 minutes to East only comm.

So we should expect some results tomorrow regarding friction on the joint, and if the repairs have reduced it?

Complex is moving well south of Tasmania right now, expect KU to become intermittent and mixed with S-band stills within the next 10-15 minutes as the complex passes well "south" of TDRS West.

43 minutes to sunset.
