Not just using ASP.Net.  There are Javascript clocks you can embed in a web page though:

The question was not for clocks. I mentioned clocks as an example. I meant any moving object - a line or a circle or a rectangle etc - which could move not necessarily concentrically.

The other question which arises from the given responses is that is Java a must or can it be done without Java?

It would certainly require some sort of client-side code like Java, Javascript, Silverlight or Flash.  Something like that.

Do you have any recommendations in this respect? Or some link which weighs them. I am interested in getting into one of them.

I neglected to mention HTML 5, which isn't fully supported yet but is an alternative.

I've done light work with Javascript, Silverlight, and Flash.  They're all different and have their strengths and weaknesses.  For instance, Silverlight and Flash won't run on a iPhone/iPad.  I'm not sure about Java or Javascript.  I would expect HTML 5 to be a big player in the next few years, so that would be something to have in your toolkit but it's not something that's very well supported right now.

If you need something that works now, and works in a lot of browsers, I'd go with Javascript.  It's relevant now and probably isn't going away any time soon.  If you're looking to learn something on the leading edge, I'd suggest HTML 5.  If you need something with established graphical tools, I'd suggest Silverlight or Flash, depending on what the task is.
