Or, use BOTH of the lights, in the same location-- and perhaps with different
colors for each...

// Sonne
light_source {
  <-50,200, 0>
  color 3*<1,1,.5>
}

light_source {
  <0,0,0>
  color rgb 6*<0,1,.92>
  area_light
  <.2, 0, 0> <0, 0, .2>
  5, 5
  adaptive 0
  jitter
  circular
  orient
  translate <-50, 200, 0>
}
