Zodiacal Light from Dark Sky® Vale do Tua

| | |

Captured from Ansiães Castle, in Tua Valley, territory of Dark Sky Vale do Tua, in the northern part of Portugal, the image shows the Zodiacal Light – a very faint diffuse light coming from the region where planet Venus was located in the eastern sky visible at dawn few minutes before the sunrise.The zodiacal light is a faint light beam that extends along the ecliptic plane, where are the constellations of the Zodiac. It is caused by the scattering of sunlight in cosmic dust particles that can be found scattered all over the Solar System. Following the faint shape which crossed almost the entire vertical panorama, we can see the Beehive cluster in the upper right corner.

PT: Captada dentro do Castelo de Ansiães, em Carrazeda de Ansiães, território do Dark Sky® Vale do Tua, no norte de Portugal, a imagem mostra a Luz Zodiacal – uma luz difusa muito ténue proveniente da região onde se localizava o planeta Vénus no céu oriental visível ao amanhecer, poucos minutos antes do nascer do sol. A luz zodiacal é um feixe de luz ténue que se estende ao longo do plano da eclíptica, onde estão as constelações do Zodíaco. É causada pela dispersão da luz solar em partículas de poeira cósmica que podem ser encontradas espalhadas por todo o Sistema Solar. Seguindo a forma ténue que cruza quase todo o panorama vertical, podemos ver o aglomerado de colmeia no canto superior direito.
