Question about the new satellite contracts


Does the little glowing indicator that shows up on the map and travels around the desired orbit indicate the direction of travel for the new satellite? Currently trying to put a nearly perfectly circular 9.5 million polar orbit satellite in place, and the only thing it won't tick off for me is the orbit, even though I've had Ap/Per within 1000 meters of desired (I left a lot of spare dV to fiddle around with). I'm at my wit's end as to what could be missing from the orbit.

Yup, that is what they mean. They tell you if the orbit is retrograde or prograde. You can also double check if your orbit is wrong by hovering the mouse over the asc./desc. Nodes. If it is close to 0degs you're good. If it is close to 180degs you are going the wrong way. After eliminating that as a possible cause, double check that the contract doesn't require a thermometer or goo canister, etc. Good luck!
