Kilimanjaro from space

Kibo (left) and Mawenzi (right) from the International Space Station on 21 January at ~10am (click to see larger). Note convective clouds just beginning to form to the southwest, as happens daily at this time. Although the crater is snow-free, considerable snowcover is visible on the north side of Kibo; only the brightest-white areas are glacier ice.
