EUTELSAT moving into position....

Fascinating to see EUTELSAT 10B slowly moving into position! At the moment it's at about 83 degrees east, with the figure of 8 orbit just visible (the orange and blue line).

Cheers,
David

David,

Interesting.
I hadn't thought of tracking it via WXtrack.

I'm eagerly awaiting the publication of E 10-B's power contours.
I guess we will have to wait a while.

But it seems that this satellites coverage area is going to be vast:

https://www.eutelsat.com/satellites/future-satellites.html?#eutelsat-10b

Going to need a lot of 'electricity?'

Eutelsat have been rather busy recently:

Hotbird 13-F launched 15th October.

Hotbird 13-G launched 3rd November.

Eutelsat 10-B launched 23rd November.

Regards,
John

John,

It's NORAD: 54259, so you can add that to "My Favourites" in the Kepler updater, or use the "latest" from Celestrak:
