What is the difference between visible and infrared sattelite images?

Question asked by: amnah1

Asked on: 17 Dec 2008

The difference is the type of the light that they record.

Infrared is associated with colder objects, so this can show feinter and less energetic, and generally older, objects in the sky as a result.
