Public Shared Function CalcDescendingNode ( _
	orbit As IOrbit, _
	mpe As Double _
) As Node
Visual C++
static Node^ CalcDescendingNode(
	IOrbit^ orbit, 
	double mpe


Type: IOrbit
The target orbit.
Type: System..::..Double
Identifies the target orbit revolution; the orbit's descending node occurs at or before this time. In minutes-past-epoch format.

Return Value

The descending node information, or null if the orbit decays.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IOrbit. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see or .
