This  impressive photograph, taken at the site of ESO’s Very Large Telescope  (VLT) at Paranal Observatory in Chile, shows, towards the centre left,  the Milky Way — with its share of nebulae, stars, and gas clouds —  rising above the VLT Unit Telescopes. To  the right, competing for attention as it arcs above the horizon, a  beautiful, almost triangular band of diffuse light lies along the  ecliptic, which is the apparent path of the Sun in the sky as seen from  the Earth. This  glow originates in the scattering of sunlight by dust located between  the planets that are spread through the plane of the Solar System. This  coincides in the sky with the band known as the Zodiac, which extends  for eight degrees of arc on either side of the ecliptic and contains the  traditional zodiacal constellations.
