Time-lapse video: sky in motion above Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa during a complete night of July. In the early evening the Milky Way rises above the mountain. (See the still image of this view). The red and green airglow are active through the night along the horizon. After midnight bright planet Jupiter rises in the sky and as the morning approaches the elongated zodiacal light appears along the ecliptic. Also note the Large Magellanic Cloud which appears above the southern horizon briefly before the morning light. Kilimanjaro is an inactive volcano and the highest mountain in Africa located near the northern border of Tanzania with Kenya. The summit of Kibo (5893 m) is visible in this image. Kwon, O Chul -
