Zodiacal Light at Veronica

A bright cone of Zodiacal light can be seen rising towards the Milky Way.

 

Zodiacal light also known as the false dawn can be seen before sunrise in autumn or after sunset in spring from the south hemisphere. In the north hemisphere just reverse that!

 

Factoid: Brian May, the guitarrist from Queen and also an astrophysicist is an expert in Zodiacal Light.
