1892, proved representative of a small inner satellite, invisible with less perfect and powerful instruments than the Lick 36-in.
When the orbit of the satellite is inclined to that of the primary planet round the sun, the action brings about a change in the plane of the orbit represented by a rotation round an axis perpendicular to the plane of the orbit of the primary.
In both cases no extraneous cause can be assigned; the period seems to be inherent in the star itself and not to be determined by the revolution of a satellite (no variability of the line-of-sight motion of Mira has been found, so that it is probably not accompanied by any large companion).
He first brought the revolutions of our satellite within the domain of Kepler's laws, pointing out that her apparent irregularities could be completely accounted for by supposing her to move in an ellipse with a variable eccentricity and directly rotatory major axis, of which the earth occupied one focus.
When the latter is between its primary and the sun, the attraction of the latter tends to draw the satellite away from the primary.
Among the problems of theoretical astronomy we may assign the first place to the determination of orbits, which is auxiliary to the prediction of the apparent motions of a planet, satellite or star.
If we conceive a pole to each of these orbits, determined by the points in which lines perpendicular to their planes intersect the celestial sphere, the pole of the satellite orbit will revolve around the pole of the planetary orbit precisely as the pole of the earth does around the pole of the ecliptic, the inclination of the two orbits remaining unchanged.
On the north-east the great coal-field of Northumberland and Durham, traversed midway by the Tyne, supports the manufactures of Newcastle and its satellite towns, and leaves a great surplus for export from the Tyne ports.
The action of the sun alone would completely throw them out of these planes as each satellite orbit would rotate independently; but the effect of the mutual action is to keep all of the planes in close coincidence with the plane of the planet's equator.
immersio, dipping), the act of being plunged into a fluid, or being overwhelmed by anything; in astronomy, the disappearance of a heavenly body in the shadow of another, especially of a satellite in the shadow of its primary.

Instead, satellite phones connect directly to satellites that are orbiting the Earth.

If you choose to go with one of the satellite cell phone providers in Canada, however, the mobile device connects directly to a satellite orbiting the Earth.
This satellite then relays the information back to your provider so that your phone call can be completed.
Not surprisingly, the satellite cell phone market in Canada is not nearly as competitive and widespread as the consumer cell phone market.
People who want to download the latest apps on the Apple iPhone may not be the same people who need the reliability and widespread coverage that a satellite phone is able to provide.
Just as you should certainly take the time to do some comparison shopping on your own time for regular cell phone service, the same is true when looking for satellite cell phone providers in Canada.
This is the smallest and lightest satellite phone in the portfolio and the ergonomic design allows for increased user comfort and convenience.

In this way, the only way that rescue workers and other people in the area can communicate might be through the use of a satellite phone.
A satellite phone (or satphone) may be the only option for communications in these more remote regions.
The fundamental difference between a conventional cellular phone and a satellite phone lies in the technology used.
By contrast, a satellite phone connects to satellites that are orbiting the Earth.
This is because a single satellite is able to provide coverage to a larger area than a single cell phone tower.
Part of the challenge, though, is that some satellite phones may require a better line of sight to the satellite in order for optimal operation.
While early satellite phones were very expensive and could have been as large as suitcases, most modern satellite phones cost less and are much smaller in size.
Many current satellite phones are still larger than their conventional mobile phone counterparts, but they are certainly more portable than their predecessors.
Just as the costs related to cell phone plans can vary widely based on your needs, the same can be said about satellite phone service plans.
That said, the cost of owning and operating a satellite phone is substantially higher than using a regular cell phone.
Depending where you are in the world, what provider you choose and what kind of plan you have, it is quite possible to spend $2 or more for a regular local voice call on a satellite phone.
Satellite phones are an integral part of doing business for many industires and Motorola has played a vital role in its development, deployment, and use.
Satellite phones, on the other hand, operate on an entirely different system.
As their name implies, satellite phones connect directly to satellites that are orbiting the Earth.
As a result of the more expensive infrastructure involved, satellite phones can cost a lot more to use than regular cell phones.
If you're in the middle of the jungles of Brunei, your Motorola RAZR might not work, but your Motorola satellite phone will.
It was in the late 1990s that Motorola spun off the creation of Iridium, a company dedicated to satellite communications.
In addition to Motorola, Kyocera was also involved in the development of Iridium satellite phones.
Two main models of Motorola satellite phones are available for purchase, though they are likely branded as Iridium devices at most major retailers.
Motorola does not provide worldwide service, but Iridium is able to provide satellite phone service around the globe.
The Motorola Satellite 9500, which was also sold as the Iridium 9500 Satellite Phone, is a rugged model that provides both voice and data services.
Unlike the flip phone style of the 9500, the Motorola Satellite 9505 uses a more conventional candybar design with no flip-out portion.
It was also marketed as the Iridium Satellite Series 9505 Portable Phone, and it is both rugged and weather-resistant.
