Zodiacal light over Malta
This is a wonderful time of year for us in the Northern Hemisphere to begin looking for the zodiacal light in the evening. Start looking about an hour after the sun goes down for a hazy pyramid of light in the sunset direction. Gilbert Vancell captured the image of the light from Malta, a Southern European island country in the Mediterranean Sea. Thank you, Gilbert!
Are you in the Southern Hemisphere? Then look for the zodiacal light in the sunrise direction, before dawn begins to light the sky!
