Caption: Zodiacal light over the ruins of Hovenweep Castle, Utah, USA. The Zodiacal light is sunlight reflecting off dust particles along the elliptic, in the plane of the Solar System. It is very faint and only visible on dark, moonless nights. Here it extends as far as the Pleiades. Hovenweep Castle is a prehistoric Native American ruin.
