The zodiacal light, zodiacal band and Gegenschein all lie along the ecliptic, as do Mars, Venus and Jupiter shown here. Orion is at centre, in the south, with Canis Major and the bright star Sirius below and to the left of Orion. Canopus is just setting on the southern horizon at centre. To the right of Orion is Taurus and the Pleiades star cluster at the top of the zodiacal light pyramid. Venus is the bright object in the zodiacal light at right, in the west, while fainter Mars is below Venus. At far right, in the northwest, is the Andromeda Galaxy, M31.
