Sol System: Earth: orbit

This is a seed article. You can help HTYP grow by watering it.

Earth orbit is generally all locations far enough out of Earth's atmosphere so as to be able to circle Earth one or more times without being de-orbited by atmospheric drag (approx. 200 km or 120 miles) yet not so far away from Earth as to be more strongly influenced by other bodies such as Luna or Sol.
