How does satellite imaging in the sky work?
Satillite imagining is a process where a satelitte in space is sending beams to various places on earth. these later take pictures and send it to earth

Thanks for the feedback!
The satellite is actually trying to fall away from the Earth, but gravity keeps it nearby. Also, the satellites have small rocket motors to keep adjusting it's positio…n to keep it in the same spot.
22,340 miles above the equator.
I have the same question in the textbook the answer is that satellites use sensors to detect changes in the wavelength of light that is reflected from earth surface. They send… this information to computers on Earth, which process into images. Additionally Early satellite communication used radio-transmitters to transfer imagery and data to earth ground stations. Some fixed satellites today use microwave radio relay technology to communicate with the ground which is complementary to that of communication cables. Some of the commercial satellites that capture imagery of the Earth include GeoEye and DigitalGlobe, which provide the imagery used by Google Maps, Google Earth, and others.
Satellites Visible in the Night SkyAbsolutely! Especially late dusk when their solar panels catch the sun and shine it your way. The International Space Station is the third …brightest object in the sky, only surpassed by the sun and the moon. If you are using Ubuntu go download GNOME Predict, of simply search for "Space Weather Simple satellite Tracker".

With a satellite dish, a satellite receiver, a satellite PC card, you can watch satellite tv shows on your pc. It effectively replaces the set-top box with higher quality and …flexibility. The signal will be more stable and you can have more initiative.You might use the TV tuner card, such as TBS DVB-S PCI tuner card, it allows user simultaneously receive dual DVB-S2/S TV channels, this enables the user to watch one channel from one transponder/satellite while recording another channel from a second transponder/satellite. Alternatively the user can use one channel for data download while watching TV on another channel at the same time
They both give a birds eye view of the chosen region or area
The satellites that "stay positioned" in the sky are called geostationary. The way it works is this. First, the satellite must be in orbit around the equator. Also, to stay in… orbit around the earth, an object has to have some amount of motion. It's called orbital velocity. The farther out it is, the less orbital velocity it has to have because there is less gravitational effect in those higher orbits. At some point out there, the satellite will be moving at the same speed the earth is turning, and will appear from earth to be stationary. A satellite (sometimes called a "bird") won't be moving as we see it from here. We've parked a bird in geostationary orbit. Note: There is a slight "figure 8" motion to birds out there in those orbits. A link can be found below.
Satellite images can show things like landforms and the outlines of countries. Also, those images can be used in GPS devices to show roads.
Satellites appear at different locations in the sky based upon the task that they must perform. Satellites that are in "low" Earth orbit, such as the GP…S and some weather sats orbit the earth at only a few hundred miles above the surface. They move in relation to a fixed position on the Earth, though they follow well-defined orbits (hopefully). Satellites in "Geostationary" orbits, such as communication and other weather sats, are approximately 40,000 miles off the surface of the Earth more or less over the equator. Because of the distance and the speed at which they orbit, they appear stationary in the sky to a fixed observer. This is useful for satellites that broadcast continuous streams of data, like satellite television. Finally, there are satellites that are even farther out from the earth. These are used for scientific purposes. An example is SoHo, a satellite that studies the Sun, or COBE, the satellite that mapped out the cosmic background radiation. A new space telescope set to launch in 2011 (ish?) will actually orbit the sun, though will remain locked in a gravitational point in tandem with the Earth (called a Lagrange Point).
They are put into orbit by shuttles and stay in orbit around the earth, like the moon. Since they are no longer affected by Earth's gravitational field, they will not naturall…y fall down to Earth.
Given that ALL computer images are formed from pixels, that would be a yes.
about a 100 basket-ball sized satelittes fall every year.
Satellites gather data from a satellite image by using electronic devices to collect computer data
they r helpful as they are made such they go into the space and dont get burrn and get us valuable information about universe
