The view is what can be seen, see also the Seeing section of The senses, e.g. a beautiful view from a mountain or tower. View and point of view are also used figuratively.

In satellite communications, the quality or degree of visibility of a satellite to a ground station[?]; i.e., the degree to which the satellite is sufficiently above the horizon and clear of obstructions so that it is within a clear line of sight by an Earth terminal[?].

Note: A pair of satellite Earth terminals has a satellite in mutual view when both have unobstructed line-of-sight contact with the satellite simultaneously.
