Isn't it there where you put it?
I mean..can't you define the north by positioning the sun accordingly?
I know nothing about Blender, but I think there is no such thing as pre-defined north. At least it doesn't sound logical to me.

yes, yes because of sun position...because in morning (at peep of day...now saw from the dictionary...good expression :D ) the Sun is lighter (hmmm...limon and blue) and in sunset colour is rather orange...or is this blend factor is supported by Indigo?

uhm.... I'd *say* if you look from up to the scene, north is at the upper edge of your screen :) - but it's absolutely undefined. That has to be decided for your scene - if you've a house, in example, you rotate the sun, so that it comes from the same position, related to the houses real north, even if you aligned it to be straight to the axes, instead of straight to north :)

Guys, read between the lines!

He doesn't want to know where north is, but how to change the colour of the sunlight...

Indigo calculates the colour of the sunlight according to the _angle_ from the ground up and not from the angle in top view. So if you set the sunlight to straight down you have bright noon light which is a little blue and if you set the angle almost even with the ground you get very red light like during sunset/sunrise.

the angle from topview changes the sun position, on the horizon, though ;)

that doesnt matter though. north is arbitrary in Indigo.
