Data for Geosynchronous Satellite Orbital Operations

Note: A geostationary satellite strictly refers to a vehicle that appears not to move at all in the sky (from a fixed ground site), whereas a geosynchronous satellite may have a non-zero inclination to the equatorial plane. This type of satellite will display a figure eight pattern in the sky with a period of one day. No satellite is truly geostationary as all geosats are subject to various perturbations, and will drift slightly, requiring control maneuvres to keep them 'on station'.
