The relations between the distribution of the refraction angle fluctuations over statistically nonuniform phase screen and fluctuations of light intensity averaged over the receiver's aperture in the multipath area are obtained. The conditions of applicability of these relations are analyzed. Based on these conditions, numerical simulation of stellar scintillations observed through the Earth's atmosphere from space is carried out. A good agreement is obtained between the statistical characteristics of simulated and actual stellar scintillations.
