Botswana.Bartrek: this was the strangest night in botswana. we were all sitting around the fire. it had just reached full darkness and we were looking at the milky way. which looked as if you could dip your fingers in it. when we notice a red glow on the horizon. we sat there anticipating the moon rising. apparently it isn't magic but is in fact the dust in the air (which is a reddish colour) that makes the moon appear to be the sun rising at night. it was wonderfully weird/beautiful.
