Live” Satellite Image of Planet Earth on your Desktop

Desktop Earth 2.0 is a free download that will automatically load a satellite image of the earth as your desktop wallpaper. It outsources satelite imagery from NASA’s Blue Marble and combines the images with city lights data from NASA’s Visible Earth.

The result is a ‘live’ stunning view of the earth depicting day and night across the globe, right there on your own desktop!

Desktop Earth

You can set the image to update every

  • 1 minute or
  • 5 minutes or
  • 15 minutes or
  • 60 minutes

The image also changes automatically to depict snow and foilage changes across the seasons. Absoultely amazing!

In a recent update to Desktop Earth, the software can now be set to automatically update the clouds.

It’s a 6MB download and is only compatible with Windows, although there are plans for a Mac OS X version.
