    you have to apply the gradient overlay on a new transparent layer. on this layer use the Ellipse Tool to draw the planet (this ring must be filled with white) then adjust the gradient overlay settings to reach the desired effect.
    I don’t know if it’s the right way but it works well :)

    To have a more realistic water effect you can use the “displace” filter: Filter->distort->displace ;)

    oook you are missing a step somewhere im not sure where but you are, I am currently using photoshop cs 5.5 and followed each step to the letter, there is no way to achieve the effect using the steps you have listed, I would greatly appreciate it if you would provide a better example of how this is done

    When you are putting the gradient on the moon, don’t align it to the layer, so make sure that that box is un-checked and also change the angle to 360. Click ok then go to image-> rotate canvas-> flip horizontal. This will flip the whole image so that the moon is on the right side. Then make sure the middle is located on the coordinates (8.097, 5.472). You can find the coordinates on the right side of the screen under the info tab.

    Also, if you want to moon to look slightly bigger hold shift while in transformation mode and increase the size from the corner box to 105.8%
