Geosynchronous - An orbit around Earth whose orbital period is equal to a sidereal day (23 hours, 56 minutes), irrespective of its inclination. Geostationary orbits fall in the same category as geosynchronous orbits, but with that one special quality of being parked over the equator. While the geostationary orbit lies on the same plane as the equator, the geosynchronous satellites has a different inclination.
