I really like the idea, but the "earth at night" overlay is horrendously lined up and some of the overlays (might just be my computer) are taking ages to load.

Mmm, i see what you mean with the lining up on the earth at night overlay. But the images don't tend to load on my computer, 4 to 5 seconds max. I am thinking this is caused by the size of them, i think i'll make a lighter version! Anyway, you richest poores country thing was cool, some thing i found out i never knew!

Very cool! But I have to point out that as of about a month ago, Pluto is no longer considered a planet (officially). Here are the people that did it.

I think it can stay, because it is still inside many of the categorys as a planet, and he already made it, so put it in the section with the at night photos if you want to be correct. ;)

I see, some people do think that plutos a not a planet as its to small, but what is to small ? Lol , even if it is not a planet i can always say it was a little extra, as i do include the moon! Any way this is quite intresting - http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg19225780.028-is-pluto-no-bigger-than-the-moon.html
