Spring Equinox

Michael pointed me to Márton Anka's Desktop Earth wallpaper generator which is a very pretty way to view our planet in miniature. It comes complete with seasonal changes in vegetation, nighttime urban lights, and near-realtime cloud cover from satellite data.

In these early days of spring I like how you can see the poles of the Earth bisected perfectly by the equinox shadow of sunlight on the globe here.
