This is a 0.980 find by the way.

Tidal heating probably. The closest moon is hot enough from that to glow and that illuminates the rest (out to a specific range at least). I could find them quite often using the search engine so they weren't uncommon.

Unfortunately (?) I think this is no longer possible in 0.9.9.0 (or at least they're not showing up in the search engine anymore).

Yeah, I suspected that when I saw a post with a similar thing going on.

Earth's current texture map has a few interesting things going on with it...

Just checked out DoctorOfSpace's Terraformed Mars addon and found this interesting phenomenon when the textures load. I have a feeling this also happens on other planets with specified bump maps but procedural surface maps.

Yes, but exoplanets use procedurally generated terrain with a set palette. For example, if you're on a planet with mainly green grass, it may be impossible to find any blue foliage. Earth however uses a texture map with a palette defined by said texture map, so it's a lot easier to find colour oddities like these. Hopefully Vladimir doesn't patch them out.
