The Sky Full Of Stars Over Mt. Rinjani

The benefit of waking up super early (2:30 am) in the morning to catch sunrise is being able to see the dark sky full of stars and also the milky way like this. I climbed up to the Pergasingan Hill just opposite the grandeur Mt. Rinjani, it was a new moon night, so I can easily see the stars and milky way just above the summit of Mt. Rinjani. If you look closely enough, you can also see some light dots near the summit to the right, it was the light from the Hikers to the summit
