Zodiacal light - 20.1.2023 at 19.50 - 20.1.2023 at 21.06 Laitila Observation number 111491

Visibility I / V

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

Ha, I guess the wedge-shaped visitor in last night's sky was a zodiacal light after all? We used it with my husband for a while when we were shooting "slightly different advertising pictures" of a familiar excavator. I doubted the visibility of the zodiacal light at the beginning, the air was not as crystal clear as it should have been, but somehow it is already visible in the pictures. With the side eye, something stood out when you looked at the phenomenon "past" it. And the time of the phenomenon is starting to be here little by little anyway. The comet was observed, but the clouds and fog were surprisingly well in the way in the direction of the comet, so we did our best and tried to capture at least the track light along with the Milky Way and the excavator images.

I attached a photo of one of the excavators for the feeling :) The little one had to scrape and handle the zodiac light for the view, but it was worth it, to my eye it stands out in the picture as well as in the terrain on site. And what does the jury have to say about it?

Tuo oli ittelläkin tavoitteena tänä iltana, ilman kaivinkonetta, tosin, mutta Vaasaan iski melkoinen hernerokkasumu :(
