Bug Description

When the sun is high in the sky (25th of june) at noon (14h00) the brigthness of the lanscape is so high that all colours are saturated :
yellow wheat appears white
Top of far trees appears white
Tested with Guereins Lanscape, but occurs as well with other landscape (especially with moon landscape)
This occurs only with 0.12.0 and with OpenGL

0.11.4 : OK (both OpenGL and no OpenGL)
0.12.0 OpenGL : not OK
0.12.0 non OpenGL : OK

When the sun is lower (in winter or nearby dawn or dusk) : OK

This effect can be reproduced only with VertexP3T2() buffer type for spheres (SphereType_Unlit and SphereType_Fisheye). In OpenGL1 mode Stellarium used SphereType_Lit for sphere and makes a settings with correct color value.
