The Satellite is far away at times but also much closer at times, so that's normal, everything is okay!

INTEGRAL orbits as such:
Orbit height 13,000 km (perigee)
153,000 km (apogee)
Orbit period 72 hr

Hope this helps!

Good by itself, but seems far away from Earth to me, again. Something wrong with Celestia 1.6? home page
