    Must be going around again.

    I doubt its parallel parking.

    Yeah, so it can be stopped rather than keep on going way past 103!

    Glad you got a clear shot at 103 now. Keep the eagle eye out and send us a pic.

    EaglePC is right. He always seems to be the first to find the birds.

    In the world of our J6Ps (Sixto not-with-standing:)), it does not matter, a singular word repeated more than once will turn into a plural, and if it is misinformation, it actually turns into spam, which is both singular and plural.

    Part of me hopes those new TLEs are incorrect so D12 is already parked at 103 for good, but then such hope naturally makes those TLEs misinformation, repeated several times already, which make them spam. The thought of that terrifies me, what am I supposed to hope?:)

    This is my very crude representation of what it looks like D12 is likely to do to get to 103 given the current TLE. Seems like an odd way to get there but sure they have good reason to do it this way.

    Green = geo sync orbit
    Yellow = way I thought it would get there
    Red = projected path?

    Does this make sense?

    Yes and thank you so much, now it is all clear to me. I did not realize not only was I a J6P, but also a limited visual learner.

    Just one question, where your geo sync orbit takes an abrupt end, based on your arrangement of the constellation, am I correct it is because there is a black hole there?

    I would think self-restraining bolt would keep some of us straight on the topic. :D While Mods are not watching.
