mars analemma

An analemma [an-l-em-uh] is a plot or photograph of the position of a star in the sky at a certain time of day (such as noon) at one locale measured throughout the year that has the shape of a figure 8. With great planning and effort, the series can include a total eclipse of the Sun as one of the images, which has been dubbed a tutulemma.
