The VLA consists of 27 individual 80-foot diameter radio telescope dishes, one of which is seen in this image in stark silhouette against the colorful sunset over the New Mexican desert. Dust particles in the plane of our solar system reflect the sunĀ¹s rays and create a pyramidal glow called the zodiacal light, sometimes visible after sunset or before sunrise. In this image taken on February 14, 2009, the Evening Star, Venus, also adorns the skies over the VLA.
