    At 19:19 utc ( Sept 17 ) a proton will liftoff, with the Nimiq 5 geo sat.
    Nimiq 5 orbital slot will be at 72.7 degrees West.
    The website of the International Launch Services is down, there's a notice about them going over there bandwidth limit.
    Ah soon 31 APT's for me to observe :)
    Not liking I am, keeping track of how many APT's are in orbit.
