    It show's the satellite phasing scheme of the COSMO-SkyMed satellites.
    
    So after the second one is launched, it will be seperated by 180 degrees from the first one.
    
    Nice that they, are being placed into the same orbital plane. Then in the future, when they are no
    longer used, they can pass close to each other:) So what, if I like seeing 2 satellites close
    together.
