Public Shared Function CalcNodes ( _
	orbit As IOrbit, _
	mpe As Double _
) As List(Of Node)

static List<Node^>^ CalcNodes(

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

Return Value

A list containing both of the calculated nodes, or a partial/empty list if the orbit decays during processing, or an empty list if the orbit inclination is near zero degrees.

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 .
