Shifting seasons viewed from DSCOVR
Six images taken approximately a month apart since DSCOVR's arrival at the Sun-Earth L1 point show how Earth's axial tilt affects the view from the Sun. The images were taken on July 23; August 24; September 23; October 22; November 23; and December 16, 2015. In July, the Sun doesn't "see" Antarctica; by December, the summer Sun shines on most of the continent continuously.
