Caption: Satellite orbit diagrams. Geostationary orbits (blue circle) are used for telecommunication and weather satellites (C011/0804). Polar orbits (red circle) are used for observation and mapping satellites making continuous recordings that eventually cover the entire Earth, including the poles (C011/0805).
