I have a space scene (the camera is located inside a box textured in stars...). I want to draw a sun inside this box. I can draw a textured sphere but i don't know how to "throw" light from this sphere. Or i can create the sun only with many lights? That's why i am asking for some technique of creating it. :)

or you can make the sun illuminate using opengls built-in functions, i think you can get all the light effects on the sun that way? I don't know if the illuminate methods just makes the sun plainly colored though.
