For Z up Left handed scenes.


texture {
   pigment {
     image_map{
       png "F:\Graphics\B3D Data\Maps\Planets\Earth\EarthMap2.png"
       interpolate 2
       map_type 1
     }
     rotate    <20.000,0.000,0.000>
   }

Then for orientation in an orbit. Rotate the sphere the planet texture 
will follow.
