Hi Roger,

(#6 > 0.95 &) is a function that returns True if its 6'th argument is 

bigger than 0.95, False otherwise. If you use: 

RegionFunction->(Print[{##}]&) in SpericalPlot3D

you will see that the 6'th argument is the length if the first 3 

arguments, I guess the distance from the origin.

hope this helps, Daniel
