X on the night sky

Zodiacal light and the Milky Way are both seen from the top of the "Kojsovska hola" mountain (1246 m) πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡°οΈ with the very bright planet Venus 🌌 The zodiacal light is a faint glow of light that appears to extend from the sun's direction and along the ecliptic. This phenomenon is caused by sunlight being scattered by interplanetary dust in our solar system. It is best seen during twilight after sunset in spring and before sunrise in autumn. You need a real dark sky to observe it.
