The #US #AirForce hopes to build an experimental #satellite to detect nuclear explosions and monitor the #space environment from geosynchronous orbit.

Air Force intends to use an Orbital ATK satellite platform for the mission. Shown above is an artist's concept of the platform Orbital ATK offers for national security missions in geostationary orbit.

GIF - 12 hours on Earth as seen from geostationary orbit

The first image obtained from the GOES-1 satellite on October 25, 1975

The first image obtained from a GOES satellite, 1975 October 25 1645 GMT. These satellites are put in geostationary orbit over 000 miles from Earth and continuously monitor a significant portion of a hemisphere of the Earth.

A geosynchronous orbit is a high Earth orbit that allows satellites to match Earth's rotation. Located at 22,236 miles (35,786 kilometers) above Earth's equator. “Because the satellite orbits at the same speed that the Earth is turning, the satellite seems to stay in place over a single longitude, though it may drift north to south,”

Satellite MSG-4 captured its first colorful image of Earth from its position in geostationary orbit.

The first photo taken by a new European weather satellite shows the beautiful browns, greens and blues of Earth.
