I have been using EarthDesk for a few days now. It is virtually a diect feed from satellite. You can see the world, with all of its clouds and, without cloud at night see the lights of all the cities. There are over 1000 cities to use as the centre point. Just one example, with Egypt cloudless, I could track the Nile down most of its length by its lights because thats where people are congregated!
I set it to refresh every 5 minutes but it will do so every minute. Fascinating to watch the cloud cover over the Atlantic on its way to our shores. And, I watched the latest hurricane develop, with its eye very visible,on its way north to Bermuda.
If you cannot enjoy such a sight and the technology, what are you doing on this site?
You can test before buying and is extremely cheap to buy! Enjoy or stay in the past I think.
