The sky is cloudy on their arrival, but I notice quite a few 
descriptions that show a brighter sun:

XXVIII: "We had come to Urth through clouds, as I have said: but the 
tender found an opening in them... hull and masts were no more than a 
pinprick of golden light. At length we saw her blossom to a shining 
speck, like the steel that falls from a file..."

Sev seems extra-dense not to draw the right conclusion, but he may be 
dazed by his  new connection to the White Fountain.
