    Yes, that great to read.
    At first I read, Intelsat was going to retire the Intelsat 1R geo sat, once Intelsat 14 arrived to replace it.
    I read today, that instead of retirement, Intelsat 1R wants to move Intelsat 1R from 45 degrees west, to 50 degrees West. So it won't be retired from service for now. 
    Good, means I can still be able to watch it on, a nice light show, ie flare.
