    Milstar 6 is close to where it's predicted, so it's reached it's new orbital slot. So nice of them to move it east, thanks guys. Another bright geo sat to show, at public observing events now. Before it was faint, at the time, the public observing event would be going on.
    It's so easy to see at the moment, easily mag 9 range are brighter, time is around 5:01 utc ( Feb 4 )
    Observational data later.
