Fixed position photograph of the sun

So this is how the sun looks like in a full year in a single frame. Really amazing, can you see the infinity symbol?

The sun makes this shape over a year because Earth rotates on a slightly different axis than the sun, and our planet also travels on an elliptical orbit. As one hemisphere of Earth tilts farther from the sun, the arc of the sun`s daily path seen from that location lowers toward the horizon. The sun`s arc then gets higher in the sky as the tilt reverses. The sun`s highest point in the sky, seen in this picture, occurs during the summer solstice, while its lowest point is during winter solstice.
