The Clarke Belt & Geostationary Orbit

This is must know information for any FTA enthusiast.

According to Wikipedia:

A geostationary orbit (or Geostationary Earth Orbit - GEO) is a geosynchronous orbit directly above the Earth's equator (0 latitude), with a period equal to the Earth's rotational period and an orbital eccentricity of approximately zero. These characteristics are required so that, from locations on the surface of the Earth, geostationary objects appear motionless in the sky, making the GEO an orbit of great interest to operators of communications and weather satellites. Due to the constant 0 latitude and circularity of geostationary orbits, satellites in GEO differ in location by longitude only.
