Definition: a stationary satellite having the Earth as its primary body

NOTE – Inclination of the orbital plane of a geostationary satellite gives rise to apparent movement of the satellite as seen from Earth which is mainly to the north and the south, whereas orbital ellipticity and imprecision in maintaining the period of revolution of the satellite give rise to apparent movement, as seen from Earth, which is mainly to the east and the west.
