The stationary electromagnetic field produced by a rapidly rotating, magnetised and conducting sphere is discussed. The field is determined by solving Maxwell's equations for an accelerating medium and reduces in the nonrelativistic limit to the expected unipolar induction field of a slowly rotating spherical magnet.
