Useful uses of xplanet


The planet Léon
Originally uploaded by viralbus.

I’ve spent a bit of time playing with xplanet after installing it. It just has so many features!

First I discovered you can add clouds (and there are plenty of sites where one can download new clouds every couple of hours). Then I realised it’s always rendering all planets, and that the moon actually turns up if a solar eclipse is in progress.

And today I realised any photo can be used to render the planet, including photos of kids.
