    I was hoping for clear skies last night but high cloud made  inaging difficult , however through a small break I had a look at the geos from 19east to 10 east...all in order.But at 9.5 east I expected to find just W2M moving west....which is the satellite on the right of the images 
    The bird to the left however  , moving east is I suspect Hotbird 9 which is moving along the arc into position ( TLE data has it further west , but this may be out of date.)
