Exoplanet HAT-P-7b Kinda-Maybe

Hi Everyone,

I wonder what all these exoplanets that astronomers are discovering look like, some of which appear to be truly incredible. This render is my first attempt at imagining what exoplanet HAT-P-7b looks like on the surface. It’s a planet of corundum (crystalline aluminum oxide) which is a mineral that sapphires and rubies are formed from. Would like to add storms and aluminum oxide clouds but not sure how to do that yet.

The terrain height map was pulled from https://terrain.party/. Discovered this while watching the excellent tutorial by Kev Binge at https://youtu.be/Yc8xJcwNRGk


Here’s some background on Exoplanet HAT-P-7b

Cheers and stay safe!
