Plotting sun avoidance region

The TIME command already described above also plots the sun avoidance region. This is not done automatically by FRAME, so that the user can produce time-independant plots. Alternativelly, entering several TIME commands in a row allows to produce plots with different sun avoidance regions being plotted. TIME /NODRAW can be used to suppress the plotting of the sun avoidance circle.

Finally, the command HEADER will label the plot with the times (LST, UTC) and dates. Again, this is independant from FRAME and TIME, so that the user can have a full flexibility to define the plot and labels.
