The satellite's Mean Anomaly at the chosen time t is determined using the following equation: M(t) = M_{o} + 360^{o }{ nDt  INT(nDt)  INT[ [ M_{o}+360^{o}( nDt  INT(nDt) ) ] / 360^{o} ] } M(t) = 78^{o}.940629 This equation ensures that the determined Mean Anomaly always lies between 0 and 360 degrees. To proceed to the next step, the Mean Anomaly must first be expressed in terms of radians by using the following equation: M(t) (radians) = [ M(t) (degrees) ] [ p / 180^{o} ] M(t) = 1.37777389 radians
