      Description

      The intent of this ticket is to show a circular dot where the spacecraft is located if the view zoom is such that the spacecraft model is so small it can't bee seen. Attached is an STK screenshot to show the intent.

      This ticket is related to GMT-3854. The difference being that this time, when you zoom out such that spacecraft model is so small it can't be seen, then a circular dot must be shown where spacecraft is located.

            I can try drawing sphere at the end of orbit but it is not going to be easy. I need to figure out when the SC model can be switched to sphere and how to make sphere stay the same size as it is zoomed in and out.

            Would it be possible to create a sphere which ignores zoom? If so, for every spacecraft, we could create a sphere as well as its model. At normal zoom levels, it would be hidden inside the spacecraft. When the spacecraft model shrinks, the sphere would appear.

            I can try drawing a sphere in addition to a model and use the zoom factor to stay in fixed size.
