    There's 
     
    Inmarsat-4 F1 ( 28628 )

     Inmarsat-4 F3 (  33278 )

    For other bright geo's, there's the milstar's. They have a large kapton covered main body, which is good for reflecting sunlight, ie main body flare.

    I suppose that the 11 by 14 m white reflector dish should make it a contender 
    for the brightest sat in geostationary orbit. Is there anything similar around?
