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.

By now it should be safe to assume this satellite is "EOL", and about 36090 km is a good graveyard altitude.
