Time-lapse video: A night begins from high altitude slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Below the clouds is the light of Moshi, a town situated on the lower southern slopes of Kilimanjaro. Above the clouds the sky toward south displays some of the iconic features of southern sky: bright star Alpha and Beta Centauri, the Southern Cross, the Coalsack dark nebula, and later in the night the Small Magellanic cloud (rising from the left, the southeast).
