    I have been keeping my eye on XM-1 ( 26761 ) the last few days, as it's drifting from it's orbital
    slot. It's perigee and apogee have also changed. So looks like retirement has occured, ie it's
    gone to graveyard. 
    
    It was parked beside XM-2.
    
    I not aware of any plans to move it to a new slot.
    
    This one had the solar concentrators on it. Only put into orbit in 2001.
