    At one glance, one may think that this image is photoshopped or its a composite because it's simply impossible to see milky way galaxy at dusk. But what you're really seeing here is a single exposure shot of a rare phenomenon, known as Zodiacal Light (a.k.a. False Dusk), that I have captured during my recent trip to Mount Bromo in the Southern Hemisphere. Zodiacal light is best seen during Spring and Autumn and I chose to visit Mt Bromo a few days after Autumnal Equinox as I hope to capture the Zodiacal light along with the 3 planets, 3 volcanoes and a milky way galaxy. If I had visited Mount Bromo during Vernal Equinox, I will not be able to capture this rare phenomenon with the cones of the 3 volcanoes because the Zodiacal light would have appear before dawn, in the East.

    This image was captured when the sun was around 15 degrees below horizon and the sky was reaching its astronomical darkness state. That's why we were able to see the milkyway galaxy and the Zodiacal light also created a false dusk impression. During normal day, you will not be able to see the sunset colors at this time because the sky would have been completely dark! Zodiacal light appears as a faint light in this image coming from Mount Batok pointing towards the Milky Way Galaxy but it's actually pointing towards the pathway traveled by the Sun and Moon as they journey across our sky.

    Zodiacal light is actually sunlight reflecting off dust grains that circle the sun in the inner solar system. These grains are thought to be left over from the process that created our Earth and the other planets of our solar system 4.5 billion years ago.

    I also did a 6 hours timelapse for this amazing phenomenon. You may check out the first 2 hours timelapse movie showing how the Zodiacal Light became visible as the sky was approaching its astronomical darkness state.

    Rise of the Planets

    Planet Mars and Jupiter rose above the sea of clouds in Mount Bromo before sunrise.

    Pollux: A star in the northern constellation of Gemini, The Twins. Pollux was confirmed to have an extrasolar planet orbiting it. It is larger than the Sun, with about two times its mass and almost nine times its radius.

    Capella: The 6th brightest star in the night sky and the 3rd brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere, after Arcturus and Vega. Although it appears to be a single star to the naked eye, it is actually a star system of four stars in two binary pairs.

    Regulus: The brightest star in the constellation Leo and one of the brightest stars in the night sky. Regulus is closest to the ecliptic, and is regularly occulted by the Moon.

    Procyon: The brightest star in the constellation Canis Minor and it is the 8th brightest star in the night sky.
