Theodore Nott Luminos

Luminos is a minor hex and is one of the first spells taught to the students participating in Quirrel's Armies. Upon use, a red bolt will fire from the end of the wand. When this bolt impacts a solid object, it will stick to the object and light it up with a red glow. This was used to simulate shooting down enemy "pilots" on broomsticks during the Wizard Battles without needing to harm the student.
