Best Answer

A geostationary orbit, geostationary Earth orbit or

Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO), is a circular orbit

35786 km (22236 mile) above the Earth’s equator and

following the direction of the Earth’s rotation. An object in

such an orbit has an orbital period equal to the Earth’s

rotational period (one sidereal day).
