Correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears that the background for ESD windows is sort of curved around ESD, which means that at the point where the sun is centered here in the shipyard:

you can either go right, counter-clockwise around the station, like this:

Or left, clockwise around the station, like this:

Who here sees a problem with the counter-clockwise? I'll give you a hint, it involves the sun!

Yeah, I get that, and I know ESD is being revamped, this is just the sorta thing that I find interesting and kind wanted to share.

The blue sun/yellow sun-outside/inside difference is kinda weird though

I like looking at Earth from ESD and trying to see my house. They should put some of those binocular things, like the ones on the Empire State Building, by some of the windows. Except these should be super strong. You just pop in an energy credit and you can see what's going on on Earth.

I bet the blue sun is related to ESD being blown up!

It has to due with the fact that we cannot put the sun "far enough away" and still have it within graphic card draw distance to give proper perspective... so as you move around the station, your view angle of the sun will change dramatically because it is technically much closer than it should be.
