From SETI Institute: «If you went outside at exactly the same time every day and took a picture that included the Sun, how would the Sun’s position change? This image shows the figure-8 path the Sun follows over the course of a year, called an analema.»

A perfect symmetrical lobe would be observed only at the Equator and the magnitude of the lobes is related to the latitude where the photos were taken.

The infinite written by the sun in our sky (although it is Earth that moves around the Sun).
