It's still a work in progress... But what do you think so far?

It looks pretty darn realistic to me. What other things do you plan to do with it?

The space is just to fill it up currently. What I plan to do is make a realistic space behind it with maybe a planet. Basically make it appear as if the asteroid is moving towards the planet. Thanks for your input on this it's one of my first completed models in blender.

(The sky looks so fake because I made it in gimp just for a quick fix for the plain blackness.)

@NIlooc223

You could have got a more realistic looking space effect just by changing ticking the 'stars' option in the environment settings.

You can change the size, amount, colour etc. Use a bit of DOF focused on the asteroid and you're away!

Nice spaceROCK. My only comment is you can still make out the dark side. Unless this thing is floating in a dense field you wouldn't have bouncing light.

Ah but the problem is when I turn off light bouncing the astroid becomes to dark in many areas making it blend in with the background... Any ideas how to fix this?

Hmm...how many light sources are you using? It looks like your using an AO light with a strong direction light. Even with raytrace enabled you shouldn't have any bouncing light that would illuminate the dark side that much unless of course there are other celestial bodies in the scene just out of frame.

Quick example image(one spaceROCK / one light source; star 3 light years away):
