space has very harsh lighting, since there's no atmosphere to scatter the light. maybe use one far away direct light, so all the rays are perfectly straight. and use raytracing, cause the shadows are sharp.
and since its a satellite, its probably close to a planet, and if that planet is earth, you may want to put a slight blue-ish light from the direction of the planet, to show the light reflecting off our planet.

it's a starting point, anyway. hope it helps.
If it's not fun, what's the point?
