Ever spend hours trying to find “just the right” wallpaper to accommodate your personality? Well I think I found one to tickle my fascination with astronomy.
EarthDesk, a product by Xeric Design, replaces the desktop picture on a Mac or Windows desktop with a dynamic image of planet Earth. This image is updated on a regular interval to reflect cloud patterns, day/night, moonlight shading, city lighting, etc. It also comes with support for multiple displays, different map projections, and a whole plethora of features which you’ll probably never use. 🙂
Maybe I’m weird, but after having this wallpaper for a whole day, I’ve realized how beautiful our planet really is. 🙂
I took a screenshot of my desktop just after 10:00 PM local time (nighttime), so you can see America’s major cities illuminating the darkness.
