Add option for masking the terminator in CoastWatch sst images

As described in http://coastwatch.noaa.gov/helparc/sst/msg00233.html, the CoastWatch sst images switch from a day to night equation when the solar zenith reaches 85 degrees. This manifests as "a very faint discontinuity down the center of the image. The discontinuity tends to occur in cloudy data, not clear SST data." It might be nice to provide an option to mask this, based on the sun_zenith variable.
This is really low priority, but I'm adding a ticket so at least there is a record of it.
