Why?

Thank you for your help!

You have to check 'Receive shadows from surfaces' in the Atmosphere panel. That's needed if you want to hide the sun behind mountains.

Yes that's it!

Thank you! I was looking in the sunlight tab.
However as writing the render time lasts longer.

Thank you!

Just a thought, if you give the sun disk size a value of 0, is the sun glow still there, if you leave "receive shadows from surfaces" on?
I'm not at my Computer, so I can't try it.
