How does geosynchronous near a pole work?


Message:

I don't see how an orbit can stay in the same place at higher latitudes without constant correction. Orbits only work in great circles.

It seems like a high orbit perpendicular to the planetary plane facing the sun might work? I don't know.

Yours,
