A so called "proof" for a spherical earth, this sci-fi invention requires another discussion altogether.
First dreamed up by Arthur C Clarke in a 1945 Wireless World magazine, the idea of satellites were scooped up by NASA, who took it and ran with it.http://lakdiva.org/clarke/1945ww/
NASA loves sci-fi authors like Arthur and Stanley Kubrick (who made the original moon landings). Not to mention fantasy fiction writers like Walt Disney(who does most of NASA's CGI and animations).
Getting off topic a little. Consider the classic atheist argument of God: "I don't see him, therefore he doesn't exist"
I even tried to Google some pictures of satellites in orbit, all CGI.
There are supposedly over 2,000 satellites in orbit and 22,000 total "trackable" pieces of space junk flying around up there,
so maybe some of them showed up in any of the "images" of earth from space. No luck. I watched hours upon hours of footage from the supposed footage from the ISS. No luck. See for yourself.
Speaking of the ISS, which is itself a satellite, the footage can easily be reproduced in a U2 plane that NASA has access to with a fisheye lens, then placed on a green screen behind a model. Alternatively, purely CGI.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NASA_aircraft
I mean this thing is supposedly 250 miles away, in the thermosphere, aptly named because of it's reported 360F and 900F tempuratures where a giant piece of metal should be.. a glowing hot ball of metal.
I watched a lot of video of close up shots of the moon to see if one would pass in front of it to no avail. You can see details of a 40 mile crater from supposedly 250,000 miles away, but no satellites. http://lmgtfy.com/?t=v&q=Moon+p900
You tell me, real or fiction?

Hubble is a plane.
