Wow - Seasons from space
Around 6 a.m. local time each day, the Sun, Earth, and one of NASA's geosynchronous satellites form a right angle, affording a nadir (straight down) view of the terminator, the edge between the shadows of nightfall and the sunlight of dusk and dawn. The shape of this line between night and day varies with the seasons, which means different lengths of days and differing amounts of warming sunshine. (from NASA's Image of the Day website)
