Planetary conjunction & the Zodiacal Light

Early morning view of the planetary conjunction rising in the zodiacal light, Walcha

The planetary conjunction rising in the early morning hours with the zodiacal light which arches over them.
The zodiacal light is the result of sunlight reflecting off dust particles in the Earth's orbital plane, this phenomenon is usually witnessed before sunrise and after sunset.

Cheers,
Chris
