Anyone know why Insat 4A has popped up in European skies? Shes currently near 9E and drifting west according to Flysat.

Insat-4A was decommissioned and signed from 83e position on 13/10/19. It is currently being moved to the parking slot. It may be used as a backup satellite, until it "dies".

INSAT 4A may be @ 5 west now or is still moving ?
Notorious as these tracking sites are even when the satellite's have stopped the calculations keep on moving automatically in the same direction.
