Marble: Make Sun magnifyable and add labels

completed by: Illya Kovalevskyy

mentors: Torsten Rahn, René Küttner, Dennis Nienhüser

This task includes some minor changes to the way the moon and sun are rendered:

  • The moon pixmap should be updated to use
  • The sun pixmap should be updated to use
  • The size of the sun should be rendered the same way as we render the moon right now including diameter calculation and magnifying mode
  • The backdrop-glow should get rendered separately before rendering the sun:
  • The moon should get rendered after the sun has been rendered (so that it can eclipse the sun during eclipses).
  • Labels should be added.
  • The functionality provided should be synced with the settings dialog.
