Zodiacal light at Paranal

This picture, taken from the platform at Paranal, shows zodiacal light in the centre. On the left side of the image a part of the Milky Way is visible, whereas on the right the light pollution from the nearby city of Antofagasta becomes visible due to some clouds. On the very right edge of the image a part of a Unit Telescope is still visible.
