This picture depict well what is the zodiacal light: a pale glow following the ecliptic (the plan where the planets are). It comes from the sunlight reflecting on the numberless dust grains which populate the purlieus of the Sun.
Many thanks to Marie-Hélène who drove me and spent those early hours with me.
