Watching linked video I think, is it a way to add sun & stars in scenery sky?
What you think about this future?
UPDATE 1: stars now presented on 49th Homebase
scenery (thanks Vic Viper).

I think it may be due to a light reflecting on the screen as they are using a camera not screen capture software

Stars have been done. They are actually very easy to make, simply using point arrays. The sun is nearly impossible to make as a ground object because of the limitations on how far a ground object will be visible. The only way to replicate the sun would be by having a lamp behind you shining a glare on the screen, as happened in that video.

The 49th Homebase
map is a good example of star use, especially at night.
