Create a satellite scenario object.

sc = satelliteScenario;

Add a satellite to the scenario.

semiMajorAxis = 10000000;                             % meters
eccentricity = 0;
inclination = 0;                                      % degrees
rightAscensionOfAscendingNode = 0;                    % degrees
argumentOfPeriapsis = 0;                              % degrees
trueAnomaly = 0;                                      % degrees
sat = satellite(sc,semiMajorAxis,eccentricity, ...
      inclination,rightAscensionOfAscendingNode, ...

Launch the Satellite Scenario Viewer.

v = satelliteScenarioViewer(sc);

Play the scenario in the viewer.


Set the camera target to the satellite.
