The southern Milky Way and the Large Magellanic Cloud (our neighboring dwarf galaxy) are photographed over Mount Kilimanjaro at the break of dawn in Amboseli National Park, 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. Below it is Crux or the Southern Cross rising above an Acacia tree. Click on the second photo to see this view few minutes later with the emerging twilight.
