I am attempting to change the background of my plot3 /surf plot figure to an image of space

6 views (last 30 days)
I am attempting to insert an image of space to serve as the background of my figure which has bunch of orbits as well as earth plotted on it, I am not sure if it's douable. but I also know that anything is with matlab so this is my first time seeking assistance on the mathworks assisance hub.
here is my code:
alpha = 1 ;
Earth_picture = 'https://www.universetoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/earthmap.jpg' ;
figure(Color='k')
hold on
axis equal
axis vis3d
axis auto
view(100,20)
[x,y,z] = ellipsoid(0,0,0,r_Earth,r_Earth,r_Earth) ;
Earth = surf(x,y,-z,'FaceColor','none','EdgeColor','none') ;
plot3(r_vect_GEO(:,1),r_vect_GEO(:,2),r_vect_GEO(:,3), ...
r_vect_GTO(:,1),r_vect_GTO(:,2),r_vect_GTO(:,3), ...
r_vect_MEO(:,1),r_vect_MEO(:,2),r_vect_MEO(:,3), ...
r_vect_LEO(:,1),r_vect_LEO(:,2),r_vect_LEO(:,3),'g','LineWidth',2)
legend("Earth","FENGYUN 2H , (GEO)","CZ-7A , (GTO)","CZ-3C , (MEO)","CZ-2D , (LEO)")
CData_image = imread(Earth_picture) ;
set(gca,'NextPlot','add','Visible','off')
set(Earth,'FaceColor','texturemap','CData',CData_image)
and I will be attaching a picture of what I am obtaining.
