Google Earth 4.3 has a feature of changing the time, along with it the sun moves, which in turn changes the lighting into day and night!

In conclusion, Google Earth 4.3 has a sunrise and sunset feature where you can see both day and night!

This video portrays a full day of many major U.S. cities, showing the way the sun would rise and set everyday in that certain location. This feature is extremely lifelike, showing how the sunlight affects the shadows on the buildings.

Cities in this video include:
-San Francisco
-Los Angeles
-New York City
-New Orleans
-Washington, D.C.
-Las Vegas

Some people have problems with this feature! Althought I am lucky and mine worked correctly, I have searched and found some possible points of interest when it comes to fixing the feature.
-You need DirectX 8.1 or greater. You can search some sites including the Microsoft Download Center, and try installing the newest version of DirectX your computer can support.
-Update your drivers. Any graphic drivers/video cards should be updated to avoid problems.
-Change your options/settings. Mess around with the options regarding the feature. Who knows?, maybe you'll trigger it to work!
-Last Resort: Purchase a new graphic card. Check out if your computer can handle the new version of Google Earth. Look at the system requirements. Chances are, you might neeed a graphics card upgrade.
Sorry, but this is all I know regarding the troubleshooting needed to fix the feature on Google Earth 4.3. Try to search other sites to find out what other methods there are needed to fix the problem. There is a "Google Earth Help Center" website which I'm sure will provide any information!
