# What Is The Minimum Distance Between Two Geostationary Satellites?

A geostationary orbit can be achieved solely at an altitude near to 35,786 kilometres i.e. 22,236 miles and directly above the equator.

Satellites are separated from each other by as little as one-tenth of a degree longitude. While that may appear like very little separation, and it is, at geosynchronous altitude which is nearly 36,000 km, this corresponds to an inter-satellite spacing of approximately 73 km.
