I am trying to create an effect where glowing "dust" made from a particle simulation is flowing off an object (that looks a bit like glass) while it flies through space. I have got a particle simulation but don't know how to get it detailed or react to air behind the object. I was going to upload a picture of what I have but Maya crashed.
Here are examples of what I want flowing off the object.
Also I was wondering how to create shimmering particles in the background
