How to make custom marker for Dash scattergl?

I am trying to create an interactive animation of planetary orbits (repo: https://github.com/crypdick/exoplanet-orbits/). I’m making the animations using scatter plots, and I’d like to make them look a little more realistic by adding a skin to the marker (or making custom markers) that are partially opaque and look planet-like.

How can I do this in Plotly Dash?

Custom markers aren’t possible right now. However, you can use custom images (https://plot.ly/python/images/)
