Exoplanet transit of the star Sirius

Here is a project I did in povray. It makes use of media and a simple disc to simulate the sun. The planets look like they are lit by the sun, but simply have a gradient texture to simulate the color patterns you'd get on a planet.

BTW, this is just an artistic simulation, not the real thing, in case you were wondering. :)
