    I'm new to the list and have a question regarding GEO sat's.
    At what speeds do they travel?
    I realize that relative to the earth at 22,000 miles they travel 0, but
    let's say bring their orbit down to LEO, how fast would they be traveling?
    I was able to observe one in my homemade 10" telescope, very cool. Stars
    move, Satellite doesn't.
    Thanks in advance,
