How do I create a realistic planet in Lightwave? I saw this - http://cgcookie.com/modo/2011/10/24/realistic-planet/, but I have found nothing comparable for Lightwave. I'm certain I have missed it. Anyone help?

Also, the ball - what's the best way, tessellation?

There are quite a few that appear if you do a google search. A popular subject.

Remember that you shouldn't make it actual planet size. I lot of things act weird when you work at sizes that big.
