Here is a page with the various Sun angles per mission:

In a vacuum, low on the horizon is immaterial to the strength of the sun.
Ironically Lunar midday would of given less exposure to the extreme heat of the sun. The hypothetical science already says heat transference of the ground would be minimal. If that was the case why expose someone head to toe to such intense sunlight when midday would for the most part only expose about 20% of a standing individual at the top of the helmet and shoulders.
