Planet Alignment Pictures here
Zodiacal light, visible from very dark skies after sunset, is actually sunlight reflecting off dust! Above you can see the zodiacal light above the tree & scope, pointing up towards the Pleiades (M45) (see below). I used my red flashlight to paint the tree & scope for effect. Nikon D200 camera, 30 second exposure with super-wide lens = Tokina 12-24 F4 G lens at 12mm, from Spring 2009 trip to the Davis Mountains.
The Pleiades: M45
