Zodiacal Light Glory

By: Amirreza Kamkar


Kashan, Iran

2012 December 23


From the photographer: "Zodiacal light, sunlight reflected from dust particles in the Solar system's plane, shines brightly over the east horizon a few hours before Sunrise. The location has a very transparent sky and the summit that I was on its hillside, is the selected site for Iran National Observatory. Some thin clouds had covered the sky near the horizon and the reflection of the light pollution on them change the color of the sky at right.
Technical info: Canon EOS 5D markII, Canon EF 15mm fish eye f/2.8@f/3.5, 35s exposure, ISO5000."
