Indeed.
I would suggest either getting rid of your planet entirely for test renders, or
at least give it a transmit value so you can see below the surface.

Create a macro that will give the min_extent and max_extent of your tile, and
calculate the approximate surface normal.   You could then "draw" a cylinder
from the planet center to the center of the tile, and a cone from a [large]
fraction of the camera location to the center of the tile, so you can always get
a bearing on it.

But at least you see the tile and know its approximate location.
