If you are keen to see satellite imagery of the earth as your Windows 10 desktop background then there is a small app for you. Michael Galliers has made the application available on GitHub since the end of August 2020. This is SpaceEye which could show 12 different views from 5 geostationary weather satellites on your computer. The number of images will be increased in near future.
You can set the SpaceEye imagery images as desktop wallpaper and choose your favorite one to show. The satellite image is downloaded and updated after every 10 minutes to one hour. The app is currently available for Mac and Windows 10.
