Orbit is a term which is used to describe the flightpath of an object in space which has repetitive motion and a distinct center with respect to its flight path.

The term is used to define a planets flight path in its own solar system, and to describe a starship's relative position above an object. (TNG episode: "Force of Nature")

There are several different forms of orbit, some of which are commonly referred to as "standard orbit" or "high orbit" by Starfleet personnel:

The unusually wide elliptical orbit of Bajor's outermost moon, Baraddo, only brought it into view of Bajor every five years. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)
