Not in the way you're asking.
But maybe another way.

If you create a sphere with an emissive finish, then you could make a scene
using radiosity, and that might work in the way you want it to.

You can also add no_image to the object definition so that it doesn't show up in
the scene, if it's in the camera's view frustum.
