    Being off tonight will let me check on stuff.
    
    First I aimed at THURAYA 1 ( 26578 ) to see how it's behaving.
    
    Well I confirmed it's like I observed the other night, it's slowly rotating. So I can keep in in
    my list of slow flashing geo sat's.
    
    So it looks like they aren't using it anymore. 
    
    I had contatacted the sat operator, after awhile ago I noticed it started to drift, to see what's
    happeing with it, got no reply. Oh well, so far looks like it might have been retired.
