Neat little program that puts a graphical representation of the Earth on your desktop. By default, it shows the location of major cities and rotates in time with the planet.

Has a extensive set of options, including (BNLT): the position of the camera and the sun; the rotation of the Earth; the magnification; and the frequency, density, and size of background stars.
