The southern Milky Way and the Large Magellanic Cloud (our neighboring dwarf galaxy) are photographed over Mount Kilimanjaro in a dark night of Amboseli National Park, southern Kenya. Canopus, the second brightest star in the night sky, is on the right. The Carina Nebula is the red cloud in the Milky Way. On the left the zodiacal light (sunlight reflection from dust in the solar System) appears at the beginning of dawn, along the constellation Leo. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see the labels and figures. Babak Tafreshi,
