What is the consensus on attaining a realistic Earth 'glow' such as a thin atmospheric shell around a (mapped) sphere? Something whose opacity quickly tapers off to zero just like a NASA photo. I accomplished this several years ago but I don't remember what I did!

The original thread I pointed to seems to have died but the pointers on using a falloff map in the opacity slot of a second, larger sphere and kleutscher's links should help you out.

I think there's supposed to be a picture in there.
Anyway, a falloff map in the opacity slot of a self-illuminated blue sphere should do the trick. I mashed one together.
Here's the falloff mix curve. One cal play around with this for a better result.
Insanity is just a state of mind

draw a sphere around the earth, invert normals, use faloff.
