SOLSTICE and EQUINOX as seen from Space

Here is how SOLSTICE and EQUINOX mean in reality.

Equinox ==== Sun's rays fall equally in both Hemisphere.....
Solstice  ==== Sun's rays falls on more area in summer hemisphere.
I have made this Equinox-Solstice matrix for simple and clear understanding.
We were all familiar with the cartoon graphics..... now this is the reality...
