Kilimanjaro Night Sky
By Kathleen Lisson
I stumbled upon the Maum Meditation Bangkok blog while doing a web search for photos of the night sky on Kilimanjaro. The post titled 'Masterpiece by the Sky: The Milky Way' shares night sky photos at several parks from around the world, including Kilimanjaro. I am really excited about the opportunity to see every star in the night sky with very little light pollution. The stars will be different from those I see at my home in Troy, NY.
