      that pdf explains how the materials are affected via dominant directional light(DDL) creating the "sun disc".
      If you are asking how to animate the rotation of that "sun" dominant directional light, you need to use matinee.
      I also suggest forming a Material instance time or time varying material to make a moon/night also.
      If you open the night template and look at the settings from the DDL you can see how the transition in each aspect would occur and build accordingly.

      Over all, my best bet to answering your question is you need to study the material editor and its usage.

      Ready and study every link on this page
