    For Bill and other's that are observing the Intelsat 1R flaring geo sat.
    
    Here's another to observe = Milstar 1 ( 22988 ) and milstar 6 ( 27711 ).
    
    Look for them, when they are around opposition for the night, ie 12 hours in R.A from the sun. They get bright enought to seen in binoculars.
    
    The orbit's for them are not official available, but you can get the orbital data on them from.

    Look for the file called classified.
    
    Right now, Milstar 6 is being moved to a different orbital slot.
