    Voyager 1 is over 15.89 terameters (15.89×1012 meters, or 15.89×109 km, 106.26 AU, 14.72 light-hours, or 9.87 billion miles) away

    Voyager, mentioned in the other answer, is not a satellite of the earth; it is a probe that will exit the solar system eventually.

    To answer the question, satellite imagery resolution nowadays is easily in the half-meter range (16 to 20 inches). Military satellites can reputedly create imagery in which car license plates can be read.
