Dust particles are needle a millimetre in size, brennende asteroids and moving in the plane of the Ecliptic - the plane in which planets revolve in the Solar system.

Protivostoyanie – faint blur with a diameter of about 20° located at the night sky in the region opposite the Sun, i.e. at a distance of 180° from it. In Western scientific literature, regardless of the national language, is denoted by the German term Gegenschein. In English popular scientific literature also uses the term counterglow.

Protivostoyanie joins the East and West cones of the zodiacal light , the so-called zodiacal band, a very faint glow extending along the Ecliptic in the form of a strip with a width of about 10°.
