    Solar PV panels at just the right angle to reflect to the satellite. Interestingly, there is work going on for nanocoatings to prevent just that, reflected light is just another example of why solar cells are not that efficient yet. 40% max. That means 60% can reflect back, at least what wasn't turned to heat which does not help the conversion to electricity. They are lucky it didn't blow the video sensor onboard the satellite. My old stomping grounds btw, LAX, Santa Monica, Venice Beach and the like.

    LOL!

    That's University Hall at Loyola Marymount University! That could very well be my brilliance shining forth as I studied Cultural Paradigms of Education under my hot lipstick feminist radical teacher.

    That building is a factory for generating (among other types of professionals) Marxist teachers who plan to subvert the system through education. Lots of homosexual political influence there too...apparently the Jesuits are into that. I remember my "Introduction to Teaching and Learning" instructor complaining about how blacks didn't vote to support gay marriage even though gays voted for Obama...like it was some kind of political betrayal. That's the kind of bizaare stuff he liked to talk about in class.

    I think those might be windows, not solar panels...not sure.

    Corrugated Iron roofs also have a similar effect.

    So it is louvers to control sunlight entering the building.

    What do you expect in the area of sexual mores taught at a university name Mary Mount?
