not bad, maybe have a red sun on the other side to give it  more color.

The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

Thought I might give this effect a try too. I have supplied the tgd file too for anyone to take further.

Cheers.

And if it wasn't for your original post of an aurorae, I wouldn't have gotten inspired to do mine. Thanks :)

Haha cool effect guys.  I'm guessing you're cranking up the cloud depth and turning the cloud density way down, then adding some color to the clouds?

this is how far i've gotten following what njen had done, though slightly different settings.. still cannot get the thickness effect that you can see in njen's render but still a much improved pic than the first one...
