The zodiacal light is an inconspicuous glow which can be seen before sunrise around autumn equinox and after sunset around spring equinox. Last year, in November, I've captured the zodiacal light at dawn in a sky getting brighter. And a few days ago, I captured the zodiacal light after the sunset in a sky getting darker. I composed the photos in a single picture for a comparison. This picture and many animations are available in this gallery: http://www.pixheaven.net/galerie_us.php?id=1
