Zodiacal Light

Zodiacal Light, a faint glow that appears along the zodiac above the western horizon after sunset and above the eastern horizon before sunrise. In northern latitudes, the glow is best seen in the spring as twilight ends and in the autumn as dawn begins. Astronomers believe zodiacal light is sunlight reflected from countless dust particles orbiting the sun and concentrated in the plane of the earth's orbit.
