Light Years: Your view of space and stars
Stargazing in Africa - Amazing!
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
The Namibian desert in Africa host some of the best stargazing on the planet. Literally every 1-2 minutes a shooting star falls before your eyes. I stayed up to 3am watching stars fall from the sky. There you can see the Milky Way like no other place on the planet. I shot these photos using a 45 second exposure. There are very little edits to the images. This is exactly what you see when visiting the area.
