When flying at night, ascend to a high altitude (above your visibility range) and the stars are still visible 360 degrees around you. There shouldn't be anything below the horizon.

It's connected with the view and draw distance (also seen in dense fog, #1772), which only remove all objects and also landscape. IMO the landscape should never completely disappear but probably just should persist without any textures or rather "true" fog effects should be used, where you only see white/gray after some distance and all objects, landscape AND the sky is alpha-blended at the fog view distance.

EDIT: They could just alpha-blend the whole rendering beyond fog view distance.

The stars are also rendered in front of the moon, see attached picture. That is not how the real world works :D
