This shot shows a brightly visible Zodiacal Light seen last night in Cherry Springs State Park, PA. The Zodiacal Light is a glow that extends along the ecliptic and is caused by sunlight that is scattered by space dust in the zodiacal cloud. Venus and Jupiter are also brightly visible along the ecliptic as well. Above that the star cluster Pleiades can be seen.
