zodiacal light

one of the things that is so neat about living out on the farm is that i can take note of events happening in the night sky as an observer, and not as just another reader-wannabe subjected to veiwing nothing more spectacular than urban glow. Since it is really dark at night on the farm, i think i'll grab David and a cup of warm cider after we put the boys to bed tonight and see if we can make out the zodiacal light. i mean, how cool is that? [yes, almost as cool as making out under the stars, pretending to look for constellations. in fact, it's just like being teenagers without the curfew and acne.]
