Real-time Desktop Backgrounds




Desktop Earth is a wallpaper generator. It creates desktop backgrounds that are accurate representations 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 the time of day and the day of the year.

  • Snow cover and foliage change with the seasons.

  • Spherical or flat (plate carrĂ©e) views

  • Real-time cloud imagery from satellite data

  • Includes OpenGL screen saver

  • 33-megapixel (8192x4096) textures so it looks perfect even on 4K monitors

Available for Windows, Mac & Android.
