SunlitEarth is a widget that displays the position of the sun and the portion of the earth that's in daylight (see Figure 9). This is a pretty cool little widget, even though I have no good use for it. I've seen sunlight maps before, but this is the first one I've ever seen with the sun in it.

There are no configuration options. The view automatically updates once a minute.

SunlitEarth is by the Texas A&M Astronomical Observatory.
