Precipitation is the term used for moisture falling to the ground, in the form of rain, hail or snow.

 Satellite weather images are similar to photos you would take with a normal camera, if you were orbiting the Earth. The only difference is, that by using frequencies outside the spectrum of visible light, they can take images in complete darkness, and show much more than a normal photo.

The most common non-visible frequencies used by satellites are, infrared, (measuring heat), & radar (measuring cloud density). The images below are enhanced to give a clearer picture.
