A linear combination of 3 Henyey-Greenstein phase functions is substituted for the mean volume scattering phase function in the zodiacal light brightness integral. Results of the integral are then compared with the observed brightness to form residuals. Minimization of the residuals provides us with the best combination of Henyey-Greenstein functions for the scattering phase function of zodiacal dust particles.
