    that means the geostationary orbit of the satellite. you have to search about azimuth to pinpoint your exact location and dish angle in relation to that satellite position.

    As mentioned thats the orbital position of the satellite and the angle for dish mounting (azimuth) keeps changing from one place to another on earth, not sure of what happens on the moon.
    Zero degrees is at longitude zero, all a ref to longitudes, so 5w will be 5deg longitude west, 5E will be 5deg. longitude east, while all run along latitude 0 (equator)
