The stop time.
Two satellites are considered eclipsed by the earth when any point on a line between the two falls below this altitude.
A satellite can "acquire" another satellite when its view of that satellite is not obstructed by the earth. A target satellite is considered eclipsed by the earth when any point on a line connecting the primary satellite and the target satellite falls below the altitude "kmAltitude". The altitude is relative to the surface of the earth ellipsoid model (given by the primary satellite). Increase this value to avoid generating acquire times that would require a communication link between the two satellites to pass through the earth's atmosphere.
