Geostationary orbiting satellites

Geostationary Orbiting Satellites

  • Moves at the same speed the earth rotates, so it is constantly over the same location.

  • Located over the Equator

  • Examples of Geostationary satellites: Communication, Environmental

Longitudinal Satellite

  • Travel in a circular orbit from pole to pole.

  • As it orbits, the earth rotates allowing it to pass all parts of the planet.

  • Examples: Surveillance (Spy)

EgyptThe mapping satellite KH-9 captured this overhead shot of the Aswan Upper Dam in Egypt in August, 1976. KH-9 provided key cartographic information for large scale maps for the Department of Defense. 


Satellites

St. Louis, MOThe spy satellites even kept an eye on U.S. cities, including St Louis, MO, as seen here in March, 1964.
