Here's a panoramic view of the west-to-east horizons captured at the Central Nevada Star Party 2013. Impossible to miss the zodiacal light to the right - that's sunlight reflected on cosmic dust, not artificial light of any kind. Plus of course, the good old Milky Way arch overhead. I have been at many many dark sites in the US and overseas, but it's extremely hard to find one spot where there is complete absence of light pollution 360 degrees and not a single faraway light dome in sight. This is one of such rare spots.
