    I think your question was answered for ISS.
    I suspect you could get many consecutive sunlit passes from near the N
    or S pole, near the equinox, for polar-orbit satellites with inclination
    close to 90 or 270 degrees.
    E.g. in late February for the N pole, the sun is about to rise for polar
    spring. Most or all passes will be sunlit. Same in early October, as the
    sun is sinking further below the horizon.
