Not much time and head to render in TGD for me in this last months, btw i kept in mind this render by months :)
The eclypse is a nasa shot, merged in a star image and set as "default shader Background". After that, the sun was positioned in accord of background with lower luminosity value (0,08) and rendered without the flag "visible disc" (it makes the sun invisible in the sky but not in the rest of image.
The water has a luminuos shader underwater to enhance its colour.
