Night Sky Over Africa (Picture of the Day: 12/12/12)

Milky Way over a quiver tree forest. Source

This picture is a composite of 16 different exposures taken in southern Namibia. In the background you can see the central band of the Milky Way Galaxy and a spot of bright light that actually comes from the small town of Keetmanshoop. These trees are known as "quiver trees" and are really just overgrown aloe plants.
