The analemma, as seen from a planet with 24 degrees of tilt (between Earth's 23.5 and Mars's 25.2) and orbital eccentricity 0.2 (twice that of Mars, just to make it interesting).

The sequence is that of the precession of the axis (possibly backward!). The stripes are 15 degrees wide, i.e. one hour on Earth.
