We have to combine in a group all the layers composing the sphere and its flare (pressing the Ctrl button, mark out the layers, holding up the mouse and stretching down the marked layers on Create a new group on the layer’s panel).
Make two copies of the new made group (marking the group, holding up the mouse and stretching the image to the bottom on Create a new layer option). Place everything out the way it is indicated on the picture.
Change the parameters of each copy (flare’s parameters and the sphere’s Stroke are the same and don’t need to be changed). The size of the copies groups may be changed with Free Transform option.
