I took two world-map projections off the internet and made a program to wrap them around a sphere and then blend between the two.  I'm not quite sure why, but I wanted to do this.

It looks very similar to xPlanet, which changes your desktop background in various ways to show the world as it appears at night.  Here's a screenshot of my desktop:

Come to think of it Celestia does a thing like this too.  I would have uploaded that image as another one in my images folder, but it's a derivative of other images that are probably copyrighted.
