It likely overshot because it will overshoot geostationary on the way down (thus drifting back east) ..

Gonna speculate that it will kinda spiral (or corkscrew) into position with little fanfare.

Hmm, am I getting false reading on my receiver? I showed the photos to prove I wasn't making it up but is it highly likely my receiver's getting false reading?

Looking awesome.

One of those wacky timestamps, but we might just be done tracking movement! :)

I think we're parked. Look at the orbital parameters . . . even that hypothetical "J6P" should be able to recognize a circular orbit. ;)

That timestamp is noon UTC. So perhaps those earlier screenshots of "blips" on transponders were accurate.
