Has Philae been found?

ESA has been searching for the little lost Philae lander, and they might possibly have found it.  They’re not sure yet; better lighting conditions in the next few months may help answer the question.  But they’ve found some plausible bright spots that weren’t there before.  They’re either Philae or some bit of the comet that has sublimated recently — the search will get trickier now, as the comet becomes more active and the terrain starts changing.  But is this our lost little friend?
