    After a delay in the launch, AMC 16 has reached it's geo transfer orbit.
    
    I look forward to observing it once it reaches it orbital slot of 85 degrees West.
    
    And then there's the atlas centaur to observe to.
    
    The following has appeared on the oig
    
    AMC-16
    1 28472U 04048A   04352.48218405  .00000424 -93139-6  00000+0 0    10
    2 28472  27.1980  91.2197 2792904 145.1210 235.9961 10.03169321    09
    
    It was planed to be put into the following geo transfer orbit according to ILS.
    
    Orbital Parameters(@ Separation): 
    
    Apogee Altitude: 19,323 nm (35,786 km)
    
    Perigee Altitude: 2591 nm (4,798 km)
    
    Inclination: 18.02 deg
    
    Good soon another geo sat to observe:)
