I have a 3-D space simulation roughed out, with functional gravity across
multiple spherical objects and a (point) rocket ship that can be oriented
and accelerate/move around, and land/take off. I'm looking for a way to
present planets/moons/asteroids as something more than a simple sphere
(which projects to a circle, convenient!). I've experimented with
gradients, but I got bogged down a bit and since I was hoping for something
more/better, that's where I stopped. But a gradient is the minimal
solution. I'd prefer something that can actually look (somewhat) like earth
while orbiting it.

regards,

Geoff
