OFEQ 9 is a top secret spy satellite. Tracking data showed the OFEQ 9 satellite and the upper stage of the Shavit launcher were circling Earth in a retrograde orbit with an inclination of 141.8 degrees. Such an orbit would bring the satellite over portions of the world between about 40 degrees north and 40 degrees south latitude, including all of Israel's Arab neighbors. The optical telescope's specifications are classified. OFEQ 9 joins two other Israeli spy satellites currently operating in orbit, including a radar-equipped craft launched from India in 2008 capable of seeing targets at night and in all weather conditions. Another optical satellite called Ofeq 7 is also still functioning in space after its launch from Israel in 2007.
