Zodiacal light glowing pyramid after dark | EarthSky.org

The Austin Astronomical Society held a star party last night, not far from my home, and this zodiacal light was very visible.  It was a great night for stargazing, but the zodiacal light washed out any stars in that region.

Moonless February and March evenings are the best time to see zodiacal light, that glowing pyramid of light in the west after dusk.

  1. Fascinating! Whenever I’ve seen that phenomena, I assumed it was caused by artificial light from a city and/or other light source… probably because too often that is what interferes with me watching the stars.
