Definition Edit

A geostationary meteorological satellite is a satellite that orbits the Earth above the equator at an altitude of 35,880 km (22,300 miles). Because of this orbit, the satellite remains stationary with respect to the rotating Earth and thus can record or transmit images of the entire hemisphere continuously using visible-light and infrared sensors.
