Thanks for the thorough answer. First off, the pole question is a nice addition but I was looking for the east to west switch. So the first thought experiment was correct in assuming that a satellite in geosynchronous orbit(22,236mi) then moving closer to the earth, increasing its angular velocity, would, from the satellite's perspective cause the earth to rotate backward, east to west? Is there an equation, or series of equations, that can show that? Does the earth's angular velocity switch sign when the satellite crosses the threshold of the geosynchronous orbit?
