More About This Demo From The Author

The satellite orbits the Earth at the same rotational speed of the Earth; for those who look from the Earth, it therefore appears to be stationary or parked. It is timed to show that the time taken for a complete revolution is 24 hours.

The animation works well in IE, Chrome and Safari.
