SES has once again "updated" the Technical Data pages (with Centre of Box and Ephemeris), but actually went back to a link database of a few years ago that had several errors.
Centre Of Box
Ephemeris Data
Links for Astra 1G show 1F, for Astra 1KR show 1H, and the newest SES-9 and SES-10 are not there at all!

A nice side effect, it is clear now where the drifting Astra 1H (incl. 4.2°) is going to: 67.1°W (in-orbit spare for SES-10).
Astra 1H left 43.5°E on October 7, and will reach 67.1°W in February.

Astra 2B (incl. 2.6°) is at 19.6°W since August 1.

The above errors have been fixed already, is SES reading this maybe? :ph34r: Well then, MONACOSAT CoB & ephemeris links still need fixing!

Astra 2B (incl. 2.6°) is at 19.6°W since August 1.
According SES CoB, the 2.8° inclined Astra 2B next location will be back again to 19.4°E, and is already on its way.
Arrival then will be in the 2nd half of June.
