" If the orbit is retrograde the increases and the longitude of the ascending node decreases."

should have been: If the orbit is retrograde, this increases the longitude of the ascending node i.e. node precesses eastward.

J2 FormulaEdit

Does anyone have a citation/source for the given J2 formula? I've always seen J2 derived as part of a harmonic expansion of measured gravity and not as an analytic formula. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spaceman13 (talkcontribs) 15:16, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

précession apparente d'un satellite à 56° prograde et 800km altitudeEdit

Une maquette présentant les angles d'ascension droite de l'équateur céleste me fait comprendre que si la précession nodale calculée est de -3.68°, ET que le soleil présente un gain de 0.98° par jour, la somme qui représente la précession apparente est une addition qui atteint 4.66° par jour.
