need satellites to orbit earth

i need to animate some satellites orbiting the globe. all the satellites need to be attached and move from south to north or north to south. I have the satellites and connecting lines built out with cloners, but when I animate I cant get all of the satellites to move the way I want them to. They need to move like this:







Anyone have any tricks for how to do this?

not quite sure i understand, but based on looking at the video, if i had to do it, and use clones, id make 8 or 12 separate cloner rings (or however many rings of satellites you want), and just animate the rotation of each one, slightly offset from the last. that will give you the varying rotation on each ring of satellites.
