Zodiacal light - 19.2.2020 at 21.00 - 19.2.2020 at 22.00 Pomarkku Observation number 88252

Visibility II / V

Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I went with my sister to take a peek at the spring-winter Milky Way. The sky was really dark and the orbit was beautifully visible as we set off to drive towards the small nave.

The journey from the car to the swamp was laborious, the terrain wet and full of debris. Well, we got there in the end, with pretty dry feet.

The Milky Way curves as a high arc over the western sky. We were looking for different constellations and at the same time I grabbed a couple of sets from the sky.

Indeed, both the zodiac light and its dim expression, Gegenschein (backlight), were found in the pictures. The first observation at my point.
