perigee
Last modified: Wednesday, September 25, 2002 

In satellite communications, most satellites orbit the earth in elliptical patterns with the earth not in the exact center of the orbital pattern. When a satellite is at its closest point to the earth, it is at the perigee of the orbit. When a satellite is at its furthest point from the earth, it is at the apogee of the orbit.
