GEO Orbit - Geostationary Orbit

The geostationary orbit is an orbit approximately 22,000 (36,000 km) miles above the earth’s surface in the plane of the equator that has an orbital period equal to one sidereal day. Satellites positioned in a GEO orbit appear to an observer on the surface of the earth as stationary objects in the sky. VSAT Technology accesses geo-stationary satellites.
