Is there any software available for Ubuntu like Desktop Earth? It is actually more than wallpaper. It updates the sun map as the time of day passes.

Maybe by using a script scheduled with cron to uses xplanet to generate the required view ("-num_times 1") and sets the generated image as a wallpaper?

Edit: this tutorial describes actually very well what I was thinking of.
