Certain values of inclination, mean motion and eccentricity lead to interesting effects. For example, proper choice of the inclination can lead to a sun-synchronous orbit, which passes over a given spot at exactly the same local time each day. Other values will inhibit the precession of the orbit, so that the satellite position will repeat every year. And so on. One way to investigate this, is to use the Satellite Information Window
