Click the image above to visit this wonderful page.

When you get there, you can drag the globe around with your mouse, or roll the mouse-wheel to make the globe bigger or zoom in to see fine detail.

You can also click the word earth (when you reach the page) and change what you are looking at in lots of interesting ways, including viewing historical or forecast data instead of current data.

Click the word earth again to return to the full view.

I have a desktop stretching across two monitors (easy if your graphics card has a dual head), and I like putting the big earth on the left hand monitor - I could watch it for hours!

If you want to do this, and you have two monitors, right-click the image above and select "open in new window", and just drag the window to the other monitor. (People with two monitors probably know this already, but I thought I would advertise one of the many benefits!)

Thanks to joris3pinter for this great find!
