The easiest way to bring sunlight into the lab, on demand, where and
when I want it, is to fake it.

Sure, Colorado has 300+ days of sunshine a year, so there are ample
opportunities to test stuff outdoors.  On the other hand, the late
afternoon thundershowers can be a real @#$%^&*!.

For *serious* testing, there are labs that do this sort of thing, but
for development purposes I just need "close enough" fake sunlight.

Up to this point, you have provided enough info for the environment in

  I ask that you say what you need the "fake sunlight" for or state
specific requirements of the "fake sunlight".  That way some of us here
may have some ideas as to how to make fake sunlight that is "close
