Jason, search for tutorials on Natural Convection. The density of air will change with temperature. Gravity will pull the heavier cold air down which will displace the lighter warm air up and create flow patterns in the air. The air flow will convect heat away from the warm sphere much faster than conduction, because air is a good insulator when it cannot move.
