Help making a permanent eclipse.

Here's what I'm trying to do: I'm trying to modify all of skyrim's weathers so that the Dawnguard Eclipse is permanent.  (Yes, I know there are mods doing this, they don't work the way I want them too.) 


Here's the problem: the DLC1Eclipse weather treats the eclipse sun as an Aurora that is set to follow the sun and always appear.  This isn't a problem in the base game because the DLC1Eclipse weather is always set to end at sundown.  But if you modify all the weathers to include the eclipse, then you'll realize that the eclipse still shows up after sundown, almost like a regular aurora would (and of course the regular auroras do not).


I'm wondering if there's any way to make the aurora appear only during the day.  Barring that, I'd like some kind of work around.  Here's two I've tried:


-I've tried to replace the sun with the eclipse model, but apparently there is no sun mesh?  I can find sun.dds but no sun.nif

-I hoped originally to retexture the sun, but there does not appear to be any eclipse texture, just the nif.

-I also can't find the sun in the creation kit.


Any ideas?
