    No geosynchronous satellite can do this at night time, except from
    above/below the Arctic circles, since they complete an orbit in 23h56m.
    
    Some sats/rockets in excentric transfer orbits will show a large part of
    its distant path during a night, but since it then moves slower than geos
    and the Earth, the track will be spread out in azimuth.
