# 1 Planetary Lighting Issue
07-10-2011, 07:51 PM
It seems that viewing a planet from a northwestern angle results in some atmospheric lighting errors for planets. So far I've seen this for Earth and Kessae IV during the "Researcher Rescue" mission. The planets are going dark!

And yet in some missions, the planets glow brighter than the sun. Go figure

I've noticed some lighting issues with Earth as well...don't recall them before the S4 update.

And I bugged it again this weekend. And it's supposed to take a screenshot when you do the /bug, so there should be one there.

However, if he's referring to the northwestern angle thing, I haven't seen or bugged that.

Screens of Earth:
just keep clicking away to the right

it looks like Earth has 2 *reflective glowy layers* and they turn in the opposite direction of your camera....

Isn't it just the default bloom setting that makes planets look like suns?
If you reduce it to about 20% it looks way better.
For me anyway, this is true of the oerall game.
