Apogee, Perigee & Period
Designed for earth observation (Optical Imaging), Dove-4s-1 is a commercial satellite operated by Planet Labs, Inc. (USA).
Delivered via Falcon 9 (launch vehicle) from Cape Canaveral, it was launched into space on 24 January 2021 and orbits the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite. Dove-4s-1 was constructed by Planet Labs, Inc. (USA).
Designed with an operational lifetime of 3 years, Dove-4s-1 has a launch mass of 4 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2021-006ED and NORAD ID 47543.
Taking 95 minutes to orbit the Earth, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 519km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 535km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 1.16E-03 and it orbits at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
