ZODIACAL LIGHT Taken by Matti Helin on March 19, 2017 @ Finland

If you want to see the zodiacal light, now is the best time to do so. Nights are dark thanks to the waning moon.

Go to a place where there is no light pollution and look to west. You might be able to see a light pillar stretching towards the Pleiades.

The zodiacal light is caused by sunlight scattered by space dust in the zodiacal cloud.
