SunSphere displays an image of the earth showing the sunrise and sunset terminator. It uses your local timezone (which must have been set correctly) to approximate your local longitude and give the impression that you are looking down on the earth from above the equator.
SunSphere requires Java 1.1 support.
This page provides much more information about SunSphere.
SunSphere was created using Java for Macintosh
