How do I align Corona Sun with my HDR background?


You can do this manually:

1. Display your HDRI background in the viewport ( Views > Viewport Configuration > Background tab > Use Environment Background or Use Files... )

2. Manually align the Sun object so that both the "compass" and "sun" objects overlap with the sun visible in the HDRI background
