TerraVista (formally EarthView) is simply an application which shows you where on earth it is currently day and where it is night. And it does so in graphically pleasing way by drawing even the night side (though that can be turned off). Can also be configured to display real-time cloud cover.

I'm using a brand new MacBook Pro 2Gig with 1 Gig RAM. Still all I get is the message "Texture Update Failed" in BIG RED LETTERS across the earth photo. No help file or anything so it kinda makes it useless really.

The message "Texture Update Failed" means that TerraVista could not download the newest cloud image from the Internet. Make sure that your internet connection is working.
Additonally, the Console displays any error message encountered by TerraVista.
If you don't have a permanent internet connection you can disable the real-time cloud image, then this error should no longer happen.

If you have any other problems please do not hesitate to go the official website, where you can also send a message to me.

Cheers,

I think this is a great idea! Doesn't have the features of EarthBrowser...but that's okay. The simple graphical info given is useful.
Thanks for making it free.

These are apps I like!

For even more appreciation, it would be nice if it could ben a widget! Things like this are so useless, but so funny that a widget would be more appropriate
