Hi all, I have been trying to visualize an artificial satellite moving in its orbit around the Earth, but I could not success. I have manly used the command "Animate" and tried to represent the orbit as a circle and the satellite as a point moving on that circle. But I feel the result was so basic while I am looking for something much professional and I am sure this animation can be achieved by Mathematica, especially with the new version of it. My aim is to have an animation for this satellite where I have the equations of its motion and the radius (the distance between the satellite and the Earth). Any help on this would so appreciated, Andery
