How did they do an "S" shaped run over the planet - it was supposed to be a fly-by which is circular? (see stars in horizon)

It's supposed to be a flyover, not a flyby, and because they are obviously recreating it with images and data they can choose whatever shape they want. It's only coincidence that the chair of NASA's advisory is called S teven S quyre s.

Or is it?
