Orbit is a term used to describe the flight path of an object in space which has a repetitive motion and has a distinct center with respect to its flightpath.
Types of orbits[edit | edit source]
- High orbit is an orbit such that the orbiting object flies on a path that lies at an high "altitude" relative to the surface of another body.
- Likewise, low orbit is an orbit with a low relative altitude relative to the surface of said body.
