My 5 year old son was watching as I played this, and asked, "Oh is the moon moving away from the earth?" I'm winning Its starting to stick.

That really is beautiful.

The reflection of sunlight off the ocean is very clear too.

I wonder if anyone is going to have a "Eureka!" moment now that you've pointed out the reflection on the ocean, DX. In the past I've heard of and from several people who've never really noticed it was there until someone points it out to them. (Seeing Earth in motion helps the reflection stand out better, of course.)

It's very noticeable when Australia bisects the reflection (the first major landmass that appears looking very brown) followed by the southern half of the African continent. You just catch South America peeking out through the clouds near the end.
