    It's fun using the slooh scope, to observe the high up satellites, while I am under cloudy skies.
    
    I can see the satellite that was a long time ago, reported parked between Intelsat 705 ( 23528 )
    and Intelsat 707 ( 23816 ) is still there I see. Intelsat 707 is the brighter sat.

    Also in the image is ARIANE 44L R/B ( 24654 )in the lower right.
    
    Guide 8 star feild, to help you located the sat's.

    I also spotted the USA 171 R/B ( 27938 ) below Intelsat 1R ( 26608 ). Used Mike's intergrated
    tle's to id it.
