Asked by Gerry Dwight
The best time to observe zodiacal light is around the spring and autumn equinoxes. From the Northern Hemisphere you should look to the western horizon just after sunset during the spring; during the autumn you are best to look towards the eastern sky just before sunrise.
Just like any other astronomical sight you are most likely to spot zodiacal light in a dark environment away from other light pollution. The Moon can also make it difficult to see this phenomenon, so if possible try to view during a new Moon. Zodiacal light is a hazy triangular band of light, which extends from the horizon into the skies. It is created when sunlight shines through small particles of space debris known as cosmic dust.
