It is what it says on the box, you wont be able to get laser beams with it though so better to go with geometry. You can use this for simple halo effects and lens flare but glow is better controlled in post apps like AE.

If you use it with a volume light instead, turn on fog and add some different colors to the gradient on the volume light you can get some pretty cool galaxy like effects. Give it a go
