Analemma

“Analemma” – No, I didn’t know what it meant either until I saw this article online. I found the text and the image from “Starwalk” on facebook and I tracked that back to “Mandaladana” via “E-A-R-T-H-Q-U-A-K-E” and “st0rmer” on Tumbler. The text and the image are from Mandaladana on Tumbler:

Analemma. The sun’s position in the sky, photographed from the same location at the same time of day throughout a year, forms an analemma. This shows the sun’s apparent swinging from its northernmost position, at the analemma’s uppermost point, at summer solstice, to its southernmost position/lowest point, at winter solstice. http://bit.ly/1booLAp
