the dark part of the planet shouldn't be transparent as to allow another planet and the sky to be seen o_O

what do you mean transparent? the Planet is not transparent also those clouds are not Nebula they are Noctilucent Clouds and they are blocking the view of the Planet just like how the Moon is being blocked by clouds here on Earth. take a look at this pic [link] this is the closest real life illustration i can set as an example. imagine those clouds covering the moon. i hope this solves the confusion :)

hmm, if the clouds are blocking the planet, then wouldn't the rings be blocked by the clouds too? :) Then according to you, the planet would be at the back, the clouds at the front of it (blocking the left part of the planets as seen) and the rings in front of the clouds!

Also, what is that small circular/semi circular thing on the dark side of the large planet?

nethskie Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2010
when you check carefully the clouds are blocking the rings too it's just that the red clouds and some blue clouds are faint and the ring is brighter so it creates an illusion because the far object is brighter than the near object. for example a bright star is 1000 light years away while a dim star is only a 100 light years away the bright star will look nearer because it is brighter it creates an illusion. :)

The circular thing on the dark side of the planet is a lens flare effect :)

thanks for pointing those out i appreciate that i can explain some things about the image :D

lens flare. oooh :rofl: I totally forgot that photoshop has that xD i guess you could mask that part to make it more presentable :shrug: and the rings in the foreground in low opacity =P Also, the cityscape looks in a very high contrast :paranoid:
overall i like the blue hues in it *says a blue addict*

My pleasure. Sometimes I like to get to have this type conversations :D

No reason why not! While a sun's energy is a large part of what makes a planet/moon habitable, the tectonic stress caused on moons by their 'maternal' planets also heats them up from the inside out, and for quite a long time... so they are also good candidates for habitation. Notable issues, however, are moons' propensity for straying too close to their parental planet and breaking up into rings... and gas giants' inherent radiation to contend with. As long as the moon, however, has a dynamic metallic core, it should have enough of its own magnetic field to fend off most of the radiation.
