    Last night, I had observed a unid, which I thought be Intelsat 907. Intelsat 907 had a orbit,according to spacetrack, which would cause it to drift away from it's orbital slot.
    But really the unid was intelsat 907.
    Spacetrack had shown it, as being in a drift orbit, but today I see, a orbit with the same epoch has a different mean motion value, ie one in which it's still parked. Must have a been a glitch somewhere, isn't tech great.
    Another mystery solved.
