Xplanet

http://xplanet.sourceforge.net
Draws the earth or other planets

Xplanet is similar to xearth, but draws the earth or another planet with user-supplied maps. It renders the image in the root window or an X window. Azimuthal, Mercator, Mollweide, orthographic, and rectangular projections can be drawn, and clouds can be optionally overlaid. Xplanet can read and write GIF, JPEG, PNG, PNM, and TIFF image file formats. The home page includes links to planetary, solar system, and cloud maps. The source code is available with or without a day and night map of the earth.
