    Depends what time of the day and year. My direct lights are usually in the orange, peach color, blue/white, and blue depending upon the effect I'm trying for.

    I saw the RGB colour chart for the sun colour too,
    but that was years ago on this forum.

    Maybe through a camera with a Mylar filter!?!

    I'd have thought the Sun's RGB would be something like 1,000,000/1,000,000/1,000,000.
