Monday, September 17, 2012: Zodiacal light was visible at the Mt. Lemmon Skycenter in Arizona on September 15, 2012. This sky phenomenon is caused by sunlight reflecting off the dust cloud surrounding the sun, concentrated in the plane of the solar system.
Zodiacal light is a faint, roughly triangular, diffuse white glow seen in the night sky that appears to extend up from the vicinity of the Sun along the ecliptic or zodiac. It is best seen just after sunset and before sunrise in spring and autumn when the zodiac is at a steep angle to the horizon. Caused by sunlight scattered by space dust in the zodiacal cloud, it is so faint that either moonlight or light pollution renders it invisible.
The zodiacal light – or false dawn – is an eerie light extending up from the horizon. You’re most likely to see it about an hour after sunset in late winter or early spring, or an hour before dawn in the late summer or early autumn.
