A paper from the Journal of Physics Teaching Online that describes an Easy Java Simulation (EJS) model that helps students visualize geostationary orbits near Earth. The simplified physics model is described and simulated using simple  constant angular velocity equation. Four computer model design ideas such as

1) simple and realistic 3D view and associated  learning to real world,
2) comparative visualization of permanent geostationary satellite
3) examples of non-geostationary orbits of different 3-1) rotation sense, 3-2) periods, 3-3) planes and
4) incorrect physics model for conceptual discourse are discussed.
