Analemma of the Sun

Analemma of the Sun

Two years ago I completed my first two analemma projects from Budapest, Hungary the same location at the bank of river Danube. Sun (www.flickr.com/photos/vanamonde81/11815465285/) and Moon as well (www.flickr.com/photos/vanamonde81/13893278724/).

Then I started thinking about other approaches to record the "8"-shaped curve and decided to take an all-sky photo at local noon (11:44 Central European Time) when the "8" stands vertical position. The project began on 2015-07-23 and completed two weeks ago, on 2016-07-04. I took the photo of the foreground on 2016-01-07 when the Sun was about to leave the bottom part of the curve.

Standing at the bank of river Danube and facing East you can see lots of office buildings, the Hungarian National Theater, the Palace of Arts and the pillars of Rákóczi Bridge (the southernmost bridge of Budapest).

A fun fact: the building of Palace of Arts acted as the headquarter of Chinese Space Agency in moovie "The Martian" and the Rákóczi Bridge is also visible in a small scene.. :)
