Glad you worked it out.

Sorry, I misread your dsun equation, thinking it was a HUGE value (which got me
off-track.) But it's only 48.15 units, with the resulting looks_like sphere
positioned at your light source at <3000,3000,3000>.

My box experiment showed only the shadow effects FROM your light source, onto a
plane; I didn't think to aim the camera *at* your Sun, to see its visible sphere
shape.
