Thank you for your drawing PP, greatly appreciated.

The question is still standing :

Can you provide some rational explanations for this satellite path ?

Objects in orbit circle above the earth. Plotting an actual satellite's path on the monopole map shows a path that is consistent with this. A satellite's orbit around a spherical earth is circular, too, so it's hardly surprising that it should be the same over a planar one. I'm not sure what's irrational here.

This implies that this projection is correct (the same projection on the bipolar map is quite.....weird) , and I see various issues there :

- the path is not really circular, indeed, unlike the stellar objects path,

- If you look carefully, you may notice the 5 minutes plots on the trajectory. Look at the huge acceleration in the south part of the trip.

This may lead to two choices : either the satellite's speed is constant and the map is obviously invalid, or, as the trajectory seems to keep a near constant radius, some additional unknown and speed correlated forces are acting on the satellite, keeping it into the initial circular path while accelerating/decelerating it.

That satellite orbits once every 24 hours? Much like the sun and the moon do? Its likely its caught up in the same dark energy forces that power those objects. Its making the same path in the same timeframe albeit at a lower altitude.

Thank you for this drawing Thork

According to this site

http://www.photolib.noaa.gov/htmls/spac0119.htm, the orbits took 117 minutes to complete, which is consistent with low altitude objects orbit times. Clearly a lot faster than the sun. It also turns counter-clockwise, unlike the sun and the celestial objects. The orbit is clearly not north pole centered and finally, considering the point above, the orbit speed varies dramatically.

We can hardly say that the same forces are acting there.
