Could use a touch more for highlights and shadows. But nice as usual.

Thanks everyone.

@rdjpalmer I'll most likely put up the drafts in the case study for this project. But the guys need something a bit more final than this. I'll post up the final later on when it's finished.

@slate More highlights and shadows will be included in the final.

By the way niggle, I must praise you for putting Australia in your picture. We don't get much cartographical love.

Question re the Twitter box at the bottom: Is it OK for the box to reach the edge of the gutter so the text stays in line? Or have I made a gridding faux pas?

Sadly, the globe rotates and the shot goes down through the clouds to rome, where it moves around the colosseum. Oz just gets a bit part.

Maybe try it out, but it's not offensive as is. Looks good!

BDH did a stunning job of realistic planetary animation for Brian Cox's Wonders of the Universe - go to it for inspiration.

Looks really nice. The twitter box issue doesn't bother me, maybe it's because the box is a shade of grey, if it was a lot brighter and drawing in more attention then it would maybe look wrong. I'm not too sure, CM is your man for gridding faux pas.

You're right, the earth and moon would be much, much further apart. Unfortunately, as is often the case with this kind of animation, if I made the proportions correct, in the final video a) you'd barely be able to see the earth in the establishing shot and b) the viewer would be waiting a long, long time for the camera to cross the gap unless you made it so fast that the final zoom down took about three frames.

I didn't use a real shot of the milky way because the background has a simple animation to keep the pixels alive and I couldn't find an animated clip of the milky way.

The work BDH did for the Wonders series was world-class, but so was their budget and timescale. I've got two weeks and a few thousand quid, and this is one shot from four finished clips.

I might intensify the earth's glow and bump the clouds a little if I get time though, thanks!
