    You might want to investigate using the Primitive light. This is the light type that can use geometry for the light source.

    Update: I have been able to use the GLOW filter under the Effects/Processing tab. However the "glow" does not show through the transparency layer of the globe itself. It works fine outside the globe. Further research seems to indicate that the effect of any "post processing" which is below the top layer will not be shown. It seems to be an age-old LW issue. Wonder why this has not been fixed? I guess as suggested by Tim (thanks) it would have to be done in Photoshop or After Effects?

    I used HitFilm, but yes - usually this kind of thing is best handled afterwards. More control and it doesn't effect render times.
