For known terrestrial planets in the Solar System, including Venus, Earth, and Mars, the Default color of the planet's atmosphere is set by the Universe Sandbox database to match the known appearance of these planets. For other terrestrial planets, the atmosphere color is randomly generated.

The Custom atmosphere color of a terrestrial planet determines the color of the layer of gas above the planet's surface.
