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.
