    The Horizonts 2 geo sat, launched on Dec 21, has reached geo orbit. Its been parked, at a orbital
    slot in which they will test its systems out. After which it will move, to it's operational
    orbital slot, and handed over to the customer. 
    I have aimed my scope at it, and its oh see to see on the tv.
    Nice to see another bright geo sat, in orbit.
    Spacetrack is calling it Object D ( 32390 )
    Not bad to me, launched on Dec 21, and I observed it on Jan 2, less the 2 weeks later.
