    Perhaps one for Kevin this....
    Hotbird 1 , which for many years was part of the Hotbird fleet at 13 east , 
    has been drifting west for the last few weeks.
    It is about 50 km above the arc , too low to be in graveyard orbit , so 
    presumably Eutelsat have plans for it over the western Atlantic.
    Be interesting to see if you can spot it Kevin .
