I think this view is looking a little north and east. When you finally see AE, she will be coming towards you under the bridge. So, since she is traveling west, we must be looking east, right??

That's a great google view by the way!

I have to leave for about an hour, but here's a shot of her on the move. You can see she has a ways to go. Mira Flores is not even on this screen, but is off on the next screen. Look on a map of PanCanal to get your orientation.

I was thinking North-west for the view because the ship I thought was actually travelling east at that part of the Canal, the way it cuts across it goes south-east at that point (well just based on the google maps view of the canal).

Dang I think I missed it under the bridge! the camera is mostly zoomed on land and not water. I flipped over and saw a similar boat for a short time. I'm wondering if this is it now at Mira Flores:

How about this one-or maybe it is the one you just saw at MF. No, it's coming our way. This might be it or the Maersk that was just ahead of it at GL.

Here she is on AIS, but this could be up to an hour old.

I think that might be her under the bridge, or it is that ship that was next to her at gatun locks. They looked similar and it is hard to tell here.

Her hull is fairly light blue so I think that might be Maersk. AE should be just behind Maersk.

Look for those big blue/black letters on the white part of her side.

You can see the big letters on the side. Look at the tug pushing on her side.
