Long exposure photograph of the tail end of the Milkyway and the post sun set spring Zodiacal light. The Zodiacal light is caused by sunlight being scattered off inter-planetary dust in the solar system and is best observed from dark sky sites after sunset through the spring and before dawn in the autumn.
