Mount Kilimanjaro in Cloud | International Space Station

ESA Astronaut Alexander Gerst: "Can you spot Kilimanjaro sticking out of the clouds over Kenya and Tanzania, in a mountain glow just before nightfall?"

"Kilimandscharo, wie er aus den Wolken über Kenia und Tansania herausschaut. Sein Gipfel glüht noch im Sonnenuntergang."

Mount Kilimanjaro, or just Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, "Kibo", "Mawenzi", and "Shira", is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, about 4,900 meters (16,100 ft) from its base, and 5,895 meters (19,341 ft) above sea level. (Source: Wikipedia)
