    The AMC 2 ( 24713 ) geo sat that was parked at 85 degrees west, has moved slightly to around 87
    degrees west ending up near AMC 3 ( 24936 ).
    Express AM33 ( 32478 )is moving from where it's was temp parked. Strange thing is it's drifting
    away from where they were going to park it, at 96 degress East. So it's looks to be going in the
    wrong direction.
    SBS 6 ( 20872 ) has been parked at a different orbital slot, so I guess they deciced not to retire
    it from service, like I thought.
