Green Laser?

Did anyone else see the green laser on Pogacar during today's climb? Happened with about one mile to go.

Red laser dots are the one movies and TV's taught us to fear. I suppose the green might have been someone mistaking him for a commercial airliner. <grin>

My apologies. I didn't know what to make of your question since you are so brief and direct.

But I will be watching for that when I watch today's stage later tonight. Let us know if you get a better distance remaining value.

I think I saw what you are talking about. It just looked like photographic artifacts that you see sometimes when lighting is at certain angles, levels and the camera lens aperture all meets at the right settings to make them occur. You could actually see several of the same artifact at the same time and they didn't seem to be reflecting off of anything they just seemed to be reflecting in the camera lens.

Hope that's all it was; lens flare. Just looked really specific, though. Haven't seen anything else about it, so you're probably right.
