Image Details:

Annalema observed in Taipei, Taiwan at 4:30PM local time
This analemma photo is composed in Startrails by stacking 30 images taken at 4:30PM on different days with sun filter. They were shot from September 22 2020 to September 23, 2021 from the same viewing platform on an eastern hill of Taipei. Due to heavy winter to spring rains and frequent summer afternoon thunderstorms, out of 46 trips only 30 images were usable, resulting in uneven gaps on the analemma. It is therefore also a document of the afternoon weather during the year!
The foreground is the city view of Taipei as seen at the location, with the tallest building being Taipei 101, a famous Taipei landmark.
