The background stars are a photo from the Hubble telescope on a 2D panel. Earth is made from 2 spheres, one for a high quality map texture and one for the clouds map. I have created this day and night texture by feathering two textures of Earth & flatten them in one image. Clouds are from a real cloud texture with transparency and bump effect. Moon is made from one sphere and a moon texture with a bump map. Radial lights and Sun light on.
Built & rendered in Bryce 5.5. Rendering time 25min at 2000 x 1399 pixels. Bryce document size 26.4 MB. Earth and Moon outer glow, sharpening image and signature in postwork.
UFO model by Amazing 3D (with a new texturing by me), Earth and Clouds textures by Space-Graphics, Moon texture by Solarviews. Thanks very much for your stuff.
Thanks for viewing and for your comments. Have a great relaxing day and keep your eyes on the sky.

Awesome work!. I really like the textures on the UFO's. Great Earth image too. I've been somewhat tempted to do an alien ship/flying saucer just for fun.

I agree, the texture on the UFO's ia awesome!! The lighting on them is also great, you took into account the "Earth shine". This must be in the future though, because the U.S. looks very densly populated! Awesome image!!!!

Great job on the Earth and Moon! Like the saucers, too. Reminds me of old 1950s B movie posters.
