In short, yes. The light is produced through nuclear fission where hydrogen atoms are transformed into helium. Hope that satisfies! The attached link has some good info.
Small correction, stars produce helium from hydrogen through nuclear fusion rather than fission.
A star is luminoius, and are constantly producting light and heat energy.
Yes, stars do produce their own light. Stars, such as the sun in our solar system, are made up of glowing plasma that is held together in a ball by their own gravity. The huge amount of pressure and high temperatures in the center of the star causes nuclear fusion reactions to occur, which in turn releases a lot of energy. When photons within the star finally reach its surface from the core, they lose energy and become visible light rather than the gamma rays they were inside the star, creating the light that we can see from earth.
