In a former paper, much attention has been given to spinning objects whereof the gyrotational acceleration has been calculated for particles in the spinning sphere and at its surface. The purpose of this paper is to calculate the gyrotational acceleration of orbiting satellites in an orbital plane under an angle with the Earth's equator. It is found that strong influence is possible, depending from the orbit's inclination.
