The sun is indeed not a black body, but due to the fact that the sun would emit a much larger amount of light than it reflected, I had assumed it safe to vulgarly consider it the same as a black body. So then the radiation coming from the rest of the universe is luminescent enough to change the emitted peak that much? Interesting.
