Nightime setting w/ maya physical sky

Anybody have any good settings for nighttime using Maya Physical Sky?

If you render in exr format you'll be able to control the gamma in post and do a "day for night". That's the only way I know of at this point.

If you lower the R and G values of the RGB unit conversion you'll tint the sky towards
a night sky blue. Also lower the sky multiplier to lower the intensity to match a night sky.
The sun now acts as the moon.
You can achieve some really nifty night renderings this way
