Ciudad Satelite or simply "Satelite" is a part of the metropolitan area of Mexico City. Although there is an specific borough bearing that name, locals refer to Satelite to a broader area including other boroughs or "Colonias" that are located right after crossing the city limits of the Distrito Federal into the State of Mexico. Those Colonias are mainly located into three municipalities of the State: Naucalpan, Tlalnepantla and Atizapan.
