Yes, it looks like they aren't ready to test the center void yet. The crane is now back in its "home" position and we can see that the access door is open and the bottom looks dry.

Wind made an interesting swirl:

It's kind of hard to tell since it's daytime, but the lights are on in that pic. They were on before they restarted the pumps too. Hope they will have them on tonight.

I might have been wrong about the lights being on yesterday. The fixtures may just be really shiny, reflecting sunlight.

They should have picked a brighter color than what they have now. its too dark when its wet, and just looks like something you'd see at a water filtering plant =\

Agree... This color reminds me to the darkness of that day. But, I think that if the waterfalls drop more water and a little bit faster, with the sun the water should look shiny.
