Apogee, Perigee & Period
Astra 2F is a commercial satellite operated by SES S.A. (Luxembourg) for the purpose of communications.
Constructed by EADS Astrium (France/UK/Germany), it was launched into space using Ariane 5 ECA as the launch vehicle from Guiana Space Center on 28 September 2012. Astra 2F orbits around the Earth as a GEO satellite.
Astra 2F has a launch mass of 6,000 kg (dry mass at 2,660 kg) and is expected to have a operational lifetime of 15 years. It navigates with the COSPAR ID 2012-051A and NORAD ID 38778.
Taking 1,436 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 35,777km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 35,795km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 2.13E-04 and it orbits along the Earth longitude of 28 degrees.
Operated by SES S.A. of Luxembourg, SES-12 is a commercial satellite launched for the purpose of communications.
Constructed by Airbus Defense and Space (France/UK/Germany), it was launched into space on 4 June 2018 using Falcon 9 as the launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral. SES-12 orbits around the Earth as a GEO satellite.
Designed with an operational lifetime of 15 years, SES-12 has a launch mass of 5,300 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2018-049A and NORAD ID 43488.
Using its self-produced usable power of 15000 watts, SES-12 orbits along the longitude of 95 degrees.
The satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 35,785km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 35,785km. Its orbit has an eccentricity of 0.00E+00 and it takes 1,436 minutes to orbit the Earth.
