Is every planet like that, even procedural planets? Mars and Venus aren't great examples because they normally appear kinda hazy white.
When viewing Mars when the Sun is directly behind, for example, lots of light bounces off its surface, which causes the entire surface to appear brighter and more white. This may happen because it uses a texture for its surface instead of procedural terrain, so its reflectivity may not be accurate to real life. This can happen to some procedural planets too; I often see a glare when looking at selenas.
I like cute pokemon and space games.
