sure thing! i can even share the file if you guys like. i simply made a few clouds in Houdini. Then made a 2 point volumes,2 scatters place my clouds in there. I also use a volume box for some additional atmosphere. I lit it with only a direct and ibl light Afer i rendered i hopped into nuke to place and grad a BG plate in. thats about it. The render took quite a while i think somewhere on the order of 3 hours. i assuming this took this long because of volumes.
