Mercury by DeathCl0ck Mercury by DeathCl0ck
Mercury, the innermost planet of the solar system and the eighth in size and mass. Its closeness to the Sun and its smallness make it the most elusive of the planets visible to the unaided eye. As the planet nearest the sun, the surface of Mercury can reach a scorching 840 degrees F (450 degrees C). However, since this world doesn't have a real atmosphere to entrap any heat, at night temperatures can plummet to minus 275 degrees F (minus 170 degrees C), a more than 1,100 degrees F (600 degree C) temperature swing that is the greatest in the solar system.

Nice! I wonder how you make these planets; totally from scratch using you own textures or grab some 16k textures from NASA :D, which is unlikely. I kinda struggle to make uber high res planets because lack of really high res textures :P
