Aerial is a Mac screensaver based on the new Apple TV screensaver that displays the Aerial movies Apple shot over New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, China, etc. Starting with version 1.6, this also includes the new undersea videos available in tvOS 13 ! See here for a complete list of available videos.
Aerial is completely open source, so feel free to contribute to its development.

Please note : Starting with Catalina, Aerial will only notify you of new versions, but won't be able to automatically update itself. This is a limitation of macOS Catalina.

Desktop & Screen Saver
At first glance, the current versions of Aerial seems to work correctly with macOS Big Sur 11. Check here for more details (and information on the upcoming 2.0.0).
This feature can be enabled and configured inside the Info tab.
You can either manually specify a location, or use your mac's location services to provide Aerial with your most recent location when it starts. To preserve your privacy, should you wish to use location services, Aerial will only provide your location with an approximate 1km margin of error.
This version also includes several extra refinements such as adding the ability to override the 12/24 hour format for the clock, and also includes Italian translation thanks to @marguglio.
You can find more about version changes here.
Aerial is written in Swift, which requires OS X Sierra (10.12) or above. Aerial 1.7.1 is the last version that supports macOS 10.9.
Aerial features overlay descriptions of the main geographical features displayed in the videos.
These descriptions are available in many languages (Spanish, French, Polish… check the complete list here) and that is only possible thanks to the collaboration and uninterested work of many. To best serve the international community we've defined a translation workflow that allows any person, even with no technical background to help translating these descriptions.
