Thanks to Peter Chamberlin.
This program animates a bunch of white dots "falling" down the screen. It starts by randomly generating a bunch of points. It then moves them down the screen.
Each point is represented by three values. The first two are its X and Y coordinates on the screen. The third is a distance back into the screen. The farther away the point is, the darker its color and the slower it falls. This gives a very nice illusion of depth.
This program is quite relaxing to watch and would make a good screen saver.
