(Jackson, Wyo.) - Local photographer A.M. Ruttle
snapped this stunning shot of the rare Zodiacal Light over Teton Pass,
which is the pyramid of light slanting up and to the left toward the star
cluster The Pleiades.
"Aren't we lucky to have dark enough skies to see amazing stars and night
sky phenomena!" said Ruttle.

describes Zodiacal light as: "Just as the myriad of faint stars cause the
amorphous glow seen as the Milky Way, the collection of tiny dust motes
that make up the interplanetary dust cloud merge to form an even fainter
glow called the zodiacal light. It is called 'zodiacal' because it is
densest along the ecliptic or zodiac."
