How do I make a nice sun in Blender? I am not looking to change a lamp into the sun, I am looking for an actual sun that can be seen in my scene.
Back in high school, I had a project on making a sun but I forgot how it's done. Blender has had a dramatic change since then anyway so any help on making a sun in blender would be nice thank you.
Also, if there are different processes to doing this in Blender render vs Blender Cycles please, I would appreciate both ways explained.
