this is fantastic! I was wondering if you could tell me what program you used to create the planet. By the looks of it, I would guess you used photoshop's 3D sphere feature. I am having loads of trouble getting the hang of that feature, especially the lighting.
yeah, i think i used that feature. it was pretty long ago though and i dont have the same version at the moment, so i cant help much. however, i would recommend that you use a real 3d program like 3ds max if you want the best results. its a bit more complicated but more straight ahead and it doesn't take hours to render a sphere like it did for me it can be downloaded for free and for educational purposes at their website.

Thanks and thank you faving! i cant really have all the credits for the city lights though because i got them from Natural Earth III. Its a really great site for texture maps of Earth. you should check it out! [link]
