Zodiac Light:
The zodiac light most commonly appears just after sunset during the Spring Equinox and just before sunrise during the Autumn Equinox. This wedge of sky glow will appear wide at the point of sunset and taper to a point near the zenith under dark sky conditions. I have observed it a few times over the decades but at best, it only appeared as a faint glow under fair seeing conditions.
