Desktop Earth

Desktop Earth is a wallpaper generator. It will generate a high-resolution, accurate representation of the Earth. The imagery is based on NASA's Blue Marble Next and Earth's City Lights.
  • Day and night is accurately represented depending on the Sun's overhead position (which depends on both the time of day and the day of the year) and both the snow cover and the foliage changes with the seasons.
  • You can add a, 3hour interval update, world clouds layer.
  • The wallpaper will follow sunset, sunrise or stay fixed on your longitude.

It's ridiculous that blogger transforms my 150kb gif into a 1400kb png.
