RE: AO-10 Orbit



That is correct. Check out the range and distance on AO-10 some time and
you'll notice that it goes 25,000 miles out, more or less, and then back to
within a few thousand miles of earth. As it goes out and comes back, it
appears to hang over one part of the sky for several hours. That's also why
AO-10 has such a large footprint.

I am running Winorbit right now, ver 3.6. It is telling me that AO-10's
orbit lasts for much
longer than 10minutes. Is this correct or are my Keps bad ?
