Ok, while this is off-topic, let's just point people to Wikipedia:
Other satellites (which are NOT in the same position at all times from
the prospective of a spot on earth):
TV, and other fixed positioned (relative to the earth are
perhaps further comments can go to the discussion pages on Wikipedia
since I would wager a very small number of us push any serious number of
