    This wallpaper tracks the sun's geographical position accurately in real time, day or night, throughout the seasons. Other than looking good and being handy, it is also a very economical wallpaper; it updates only once a minute which has a low impact on battery consumption and cpu cycles.

    We just added the moon to our live wallpaper. It took a little longer than expected but we took great care, referencing two 3rd party websites, to ensure that our moon is positioned accurately, in the correct phase and always facing the sun. Pretty sure all the trig and math caused a little brain damage.
    Hey any suggestions and comments are welcome, good or bad, we don't mind, so fire away if you have any.
