I think I must have missed something entirely. I have my sphere gizmo a little larger than the planet sphere. I have applied volume fog through the environment effects. Settings are left as standard, except for the size (200) and uniformity (1.0). This creates a white, pseudo cloud across the entire planet sphere. I'm not trying to place the planet material on the sphere gizmo (won't let me anyway). In fact, regardless of the falloff I have on my plane sphere it doesn't seem to affect the spehere gizmo at all. The planet fades nicely away from the sunlight, but the sphere gizmo continues to create a uniformly lit white cloud.

I guess the question I need to ask now is, how do I get the falloff from the planet material to affect the sphere gizmo and its fog?

Thanks for helping with this.
