Freaky Friday - What Satellites See

In my latest release, Dylan's Song, I used satellite technology as a means of watching the CIA operatives as they traveled into a dangerous region to rescue a fellow CIA operative that is held captive.

But just how detailed can satellite technology get?

From a computer console on Planet Earth, a satellite can be repositioned to a specific latitude, longitude and degree. Because satellites are so high, they can not be detected with the naked eye but as countries become more technologically advanced, some are spying on the spy satellites...

In a successful mission, a spy satellite can detect a dog in the dark of night. And that dog can be viewed with such clarity that the person(s) viewing it can determine the breed and size of the dog.
