The zodiacal light with the decrescent moon and Jupiter in the ecliptical plane this morning at the Lighthouse north of the Kiel Fjord.

Though there are some artificial lights around the fjord one can see it fairly well with the naked eye even two months after equinox.

The conditions were perfect as there was foehn wind from the norwegian mountains advecting and warming cold and dry air directly from arctic regions.
Before the sun rose over the horizon the sky turned purple-yellow and earths shadow was visible to the west.
