No, this light is created internally within JavaFX as a convenient light 
source if the scene doesn't have one. User can't access to it reference.

You can find this information in the Scene class documentation:

Class Scene


A default headlight will be added to a scene that contains one or more 
Shape3D nodes, but no light nodes. This light source is a Color.WHITE 
PointLight placed at the camera position.
