Congrats on your first geosats !

When trying to observe CLASSIFIED geosats use Mikes INT file - 
CLASSIFIED.TLE gives the date when last observed but the INT file has 
the orbit "updated" to the current day ( that is if you download it when 
you wish to observe) so will be closer to what you see.

Thuraya 2 is about two - to three magnitudes fainter than the MENTOR 
satellite so easy to identify which is which.
