Zodiacal lights

From spaceweather.com:

ZODIACAL LIGHTS: When the sun does down tonight and the glow of sunset fades away, another glow will take its place--the Zodiacal Lights. If you live in the northern hemisphere, this is the best time of year to see them. They stretch upward from the western horizon forming a pale luminous triangle visible from places with dark skies. Zodiacal Lights are faint but pretty, and worth a trip to the countryside to see.

OK, so everyone go out tonight and take a look. The closest we'll probably get to Northern lights. Hopefully it will be a good show.
