At the break of dawn the southern Milky Way is photographed over Mount Kilimanjaro, as seen from Amboseli National Park, Kenya. The Great Carina Nebula is the red cloud at top. Constellation Crux or the Southern Cross appear on the left. On the Earth is the second peak of Mount Kilimanjaro reaching 5149 m high, known as Mawenzi (meaning the moon in Swahili). Click on the constellation icon above the image to see wider angle landscape view where the main Kilimanjaro peak and the Large Magellanic Cloud are also visible. Babak Tafreshi,
