There are lots of small lights inside the crescent who do not shine on that picture.

They use flood-lights installed at the base of the crescent to light it in normal days. So, to light up the upper half you'd have to install flood-lights ON the crescent, which is a bad idea.
In hajj when we used to go to the train depot, I saw many times one horizontal light of the spire moving in a circle. It was agreat but I cpuldn't record it.

There's a large community of Southeast Asian-Hejazis, they trace their origins anywhere from Java to Myanmar. Although I don't think AsyqulHuur is Saudi.

Our own member here actually, the Pharaoh, is Javanese-Saudi.
