Of course.  Use the Search feature in the toolbar, or your favorite search
engine + keyword POVRay, and you will find loads.

Search for terms like Solar System, Planet, Earth, Moon, Spaceship, Galaxy, Sun,
StarField, etc.  Lots of work, including a (then) custom version of POV-Ray to
support the scales needed to render Larry Niven's RingWorld.

SO much has been discussed, that it's hardly worth addressing here (yet), until
you've had time to peruse and digest it all, and see if you have any specific
questions after you start playing with the project and have some sample code and
test renders.

So - you're lucky.   :D ;)
