    Sorry ~ I don't know how to embed...

    I did put up a link to the camera I'm watching, however.

    I think the one you're watching is one of the ROVs, sitting on the bottom. They do kick up some dust when they are turned on, and it appears pitch black when they are shut down completely.

    Assuming the feeds are all still live, everything still looks good:

    At that link, there's a Chat Room right next to the vid, and there are several peeps there, right now, that saw what happened.

    I think the plan was to hold back the pressure, then release it temporarily as part of the testing process.

    XLX 37 at my link shows the cap. The date and timestamp are current, so assuming the feed hasn't been doctored, everything is still looking good at the cap.
