Definitions for "Geosynchronous satellite"
A satellite that orbits the Earth during the same period of time in which the Earth rotates, maintaining a fixed orbit, about 24,000 miles above the Earth.
A satellite moving west to east whose orbital period is equal to the earthâ€(tm)s rotational period. If the orbit is circular and lies in the plane of the equator, the satellite will remain over one point. Otherwise it will appear to make a figure eight once a day between the latitudes that correspond to its angle of inclination over the equator. The constellation for GPS is geosynchronous.
a satellite that remains above the same point on the Earth
