Descripción: Arco diurno del Sol, cada hora en los 2 solsticios, vistos en el cielo desde el ecuador. También se muestran "soles crepusculares" hasta los -18º de elevación.

"On the equator the Sun is not overhead every day, as some people think. In fact that happens only on two days of the year, the equinoxes. The solstices are the dates that the Sun stays farthest away from the zenith, only reaching an altitude of 66.56° either to the north or the south. The only thing special about the equator is that all days of the year, solstices included, have roughly the same length of about 12 hours, so that it makes no sense to talk about summer and winter. Instead, tropical areas often have wet and dry seasons."
