Physical property defined by the difference of the equatorial radius and polar radius divided by the equatorial radius of the CelestialObject body.
This value is used in calculating properties such as Spacecraft.Height. When a Spacecraft is propagated using a gravitational potential field file, the Reciprocal Flattening specified in the file is used for propagation of that Spacecraft.
This value is also used with the VisibilityCalculator and VisibilitySegment objects if the VisibilitySegment.CelestialObjectTargetModel and/or VisibilitySegment.CelestialObjectOccultationModel properties are set to "ellipsoid".
