Looking for a specific desktop background...

A guy I used to know had an updating background that would show the earth as viewed from space, with the terminator and all. It is a really cool background.

Unfortunately, I cant seem to find it no matter how much I google for it using different search terms. Any one have any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks,

The program is called Geoclock. The Pro version has the spinning globe. Very cool program.

That is really cool, but its not what I am looking for. There is a program that will make an updating background with the terminator and everything, and the dark part of earth looks like this: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/image/0011/earthlights2_dmsp_big.jpg .

WooooHooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found it! After 6 hours of googling, I found the program! It is called EarthView 2.0. I can set a plethora of options, one of which is how often it updates. It is sooooo cool.

Here is a screenshot:
