Anybody else notice that Two International Place, the smaller building connected to One International Place, has a different nighttime personality?

I had noticed the lighted dome on top had been off at night for several evenings. All of a sudden, they seem to have renovated the top dome and lighted it a bit differently.

Before, it seemed the lighted dome laid above a separate base; now, it appears that, at least to me, that they've installed a brand new top, seemingly in one piece.
I realize it's likely the same top, but maybe with minor modification, but at night it looks like it's been wrapped, almost like a lighted condom or hat.

The result is a more magnified top, and the color is a bit off, more like a harvest moon color instead of warm white incandescent?

I think it's OK, but I may learn to like it more later. I just don't do well with change.

You'll notice it at night when driving to the airport tunnels from Logan as well as from parts of the Seaport (well, the parts that aren't blocked by the myriad new buildings blocking out original views to downtown).

Plus, they light it overnight now instead of shutting it off at 11 p.m. Not sure if that'll continue. It gives the skyline miore pizzazz, I guess.
