Abstract

In this paper some interesting properties of circular orbiting satellites' ground traces are pointed out. It will be shown how such properties are typical of some spherical and plane curves that look like flowers both in their name and shape. In addition, the choice of the best satellite constellations satisfying specific requirements is strongly facilitated by exploiting these properties
