Create a New Document and then create a Rectangular shape size 5cm x 5cm fill it with bright radial gradient. Then Rasterize your image by go to the top menu ==> Object ==>Rasterize and just clik “ok”
Now go to the Filter==>Create ==>Object Mosaic and play with numbers there. Let's make some option as below:
New size: 5 cm for both width and height
Tile spacing = 0 cm for both width and height
Number of Tiles =30 (again for both)
Check ‘Delete Raster’ box.
Now we’ve got a nicemosaic.
Select the rectangular and drag and drop it into the Symbols panel.
Ungroup this ball (Ctrl + Shift + G) or right click => ungroup do like this 3 times and select the side ball to remove it away.
Now lets add some star light on the ball make it more shining by drawing 4 part of stars for our finall result.
I know that it was not colorfull enough I hope every one can give me some idea to make it nice and lighter then. So let's share..

Well in this tutorial and the main focusing is one the ball and light. The rest can be design to be look more nicer amoung the ball. It is actually quite simple, the technique is to create the texture first and map it onto the 3D sphere. However, we will require Illustrator CS and above to create this awesome Illustrator effect.
1. Create the Disco Ball
Select the Rectangle Tool (M) and make a square object with light blue color. After this select the square object and hold Alt key then drag to make other object and give it as black color.
