All three streaks are the trailing images of the Sun. Top image was shot on the day of northern summer solstice, bottom is northern winter solstice. The middle streak from 30th August, one of the dates of the crossover in analemma's figure-8 shape.

Dear Dennis: I have been aware of this photograph since it was first published. I am a sundial enthusiast and an analemma at every hour line on a sundial allows one to accurately determine clock time from apparent sun time. In these times of digital watches under $25 no one needs a sundial, but to observe accurately the working of the heavens compared to our daily concerns is to experience a profound connection to the universe in our daily lives. Thank you for this photograph

Thanks, Dennis. I use that photograph for wallpaper on my PC. I purchased a large sized print from S&T when they still sold them.
