Motion of the center of mass

  1. I know that the motion of the center of mass (CM) is determinated only by all external forces.
    By considering a irregular body like a atificial satellite in orbit around the earth, which is the point(s) that actually is in orbit and is in circular motion around the earth? is the center of mass? and why
