Zodiacal light and Milky Way. Fisheye photograph of the Milky Way and zodiacal light in the sky over a lake in Maine, USA. Zodiacal light is caused by reflection of the Sun's light off tiny dust particles in the plane of the solar system. The light (extending up from the horizon) is very faint, and is only visible on very dark, moonless nights.
