* Answer: A geosynchronous orbit is inclined relative to the equator and a satellite in that orbit appears over the same point on Earth every day at the same time. A geostationary orbit lies on the equatorial plane and therefore remains above the same point on Earth all the time. Ergo, a geostationary orbit is a geosynchronous orbit with an inclination of zero degree.
