The sun is a big point ant the moon is a cardioid:


Here you have the code. It is a simple example of how to use ggplot:

t0=seq(from=3, to=2*n+1, by=2) %% n
df=data.frame(x1=cos((t1-1)*2*pi/n), y1=sin((t1-1)*2*pi/n), x2=cos((t2-1)*2*pi/n), y2=sin((t2-1)*2*pi/n))
panel.background = element_rect(fill="white"),
panel.grid = element_blank(),
axis.text =element_blank())
ggplot(df, aes(x = x1, y = y1, xend = x2, yend = y2)) +
geom_point(x=0, y=0, size=245, color="gold")+
geom_segment(color="white", alpha=.5)+opt
