    Geostationary orbit, a circular or km (22, miles) above Earth’s Equator in which a satellite’s orbital period is equal to Earth’s rotation period of 23 hours and 56 minutes. A spacecraft in this orbit appears to an observer on Earth to be stationary in the sky. This particular orbit is used for meteorological and communications satellites.

NASA’s Aqua satellite, for instance, requires about 99 minutes to orbit Earth at about kilometers up (low Earth orbit), while a weather satellite ab kilometers from Earth’s surface takes 23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4 seconds to complete an orbit.

Applied Sciences Collection. NASA satellites and sensors constantly take the pulse of our planet. Researchers apply those observations on local and regional scales to better manage things like food and water supplies, health, safety, land use, and ecosystems.

Binary Optics: Binary (diffractive) optics uses computer-aided design (CAD) tools and very- large-scale-integration (VLSI) electronic circuit manufacturing technology to create novel optical devices and to provide design freedom and new materials choices for optical elements.

Designed to operate in a geosynchronous orbit at 35, (22, statute miles) above the Earth, the advanced GOES I-M satellites continuously viewed the continental United States, neighboring environs of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, and Central and South America.

A geosynchronous orbit is a high Earth orbit that allows satellites to match Earth's rotation. Located at 22, miles (35, kilometers) above Earth's equator, this position is a valuable spot. The Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) has been given the responsibility for conceptual development of the Geostationary Earth Observatory (GEO) element of NASA's Mission to Planet Earth program.

Because these multi-instrument geostationary satellites will orbit over given points on the ground, theAuthor: William C. Snoddy, Vernon W. Keller. NASA Earth Observatory is an online publishing outlet for NASA which was created in It is the principal source of satellite imagery and other scientific information pertaining to the climate and the environment which are being provided by NASA for consumption by the general public.

Marshall Space Flight Center Earth Science Branch in Huntsville. The satellite isn't motionless, though. It's in a very high orbit and circles the Earth once a day. This orbit makes the satellite travel at the same rate as the Earth's spin. There are many satellites currently in geosynchronous orbits.

The weather satellite pictures (GIF, 60k) we see on the news come from these satellites. They constantly. Therefore, they are "parked" in what is called a geostationary (gee-oh-STAY-shun-air-ee) orbit. They orbit exactly over Earth's equator and make one orbit per day.

Thus, since Earth rotates once on its axis per day, the GOES satellite seems to hover over the same spot on Earth all the time.Let’s dive into some of the differences between geosynchronous and geostationary orbits.

Geosynchronous Orbit. Ab kilometers above the Earth’s surface, satellites are in geostationary orbit. From the center of the Earth, this is approximat kilometers. This distance puts it in the high Earth orbit category.
