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.

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