     This is's done in opengl using GLUT with c (compiled on windows machine using VC++6).3d earth rotating around the sun and the stars are shining and there is also some alien spaceship and xfiles music.It shows the basics of OpenGL(glut,user input,sphere mapping,playing music,lighting).it's really basic code and everyone should understand it.I used .raw textures, because they are easy to handle and easy to understand for beginners. ssk,comment,vote :)

use glDisable(GL_BLEND); to disable TextureBlending, cause i suppose the viewer can't see the earth behind the sun ;-)

I guess also that this isn't advance.

... but keep on (4 Globes)
