'Flyby anomaly' is a significant but unaccounted apparent increase or reduction in the velocity of a spacecraft during Earth-flybys. These phenomena could not be explained by current physical laws. This article attempts to show that the noticed discrepancies are apparent and they are produced by faulty geometry used in contemporary laws of planetary motion. In reality, the spacecrafts and external efforts on them behave normally. There are no causes or actions, which vary a spacecraft's linear velocity during Earth-flybys. There is no basis for assumption of strange 'forces' or mysterious effects on or about these spacecrafts.
