I understand the point of the question from a scientific perspective, but if it was possible for God to bring a plague of darkness on the Egyptians, while at the same time providing light to the Israelites (Exodus 10:21-23), or to delay the setting of the sun at Joshua's request (Joshua 10:12-14), I have no difficulty in accepting His ability to dim or "turn off" the sun's light (or to allow that dimming through His permissive will) to whatever degree or by whatever means He chooses.
