This version shows the clouds again and works very well here in europe. I use 10.9.2 and earth runs without any problem here...

3.0 is currently showing up as just a gray void on screen. The backside of the thing works fine, with lots of links. But the spinning Earth ain't there no more. Nothing. I've re-downloaded the latest version, that being 3.0, and reinstalled it. Same old nothing but a gray fuzz. Apparently there is no data being fed to it any longer. This makes it pointless, unless you use the links on its back.

Clouds no longer show up. Maybe the loss of a satellite did this.

I like the idea. But this widget is very glitchy. This is betaware. I'm not sure I'm going to bother using it in the future. Here are some major problems: 1) I note here that it is possible to drag it around by its 'i' info button. But that is entirely user-hostile, not remotely intuitive. I found I could drag it around after I clicked the 'i' button while in information mode. It seriously should have its entire surface set as dragable. 2) It's fun to see the world go round, but it glitches from a sort of night to day mode seemingly haphazardly. It does NOT correspond to what is currently day or night. I'm not sure exactly what it is attempting to portray, but it isn't anything in real time. I have a far superior widget that shows a map of the planet with night and day areas clearly delineated, which I will be using instead. 3) It needs a shrink button for when you're not viewing it. This is very common among other big widgets. As it is, the space it takes up is HUGE. 4) It refuses to give up the front layer of the widgets. It is impossible to use anything behind it's massive box area. This is extremely naughty for a widget! I have well over a dozen other widgets I run at the same time. That this widget lays on top of more than half of them is not acceptable. It's free! It has promise. It needs work. I kind of don't want to bother with it again. But I'll check it out after the bugs are squashed.

Thought I'd give this a try, and am really enjoying it. My only problem with it is that it sits smack in the middle of my dashboard, and seemingly has no way for me to move the widget around, as I can do with all my other widgets. Thanks for a neat widget!

You can move it around by clicking and dragging the info button.
