The Great Eye Of Africa - Mauritania
How this great nature mark formed? Well to tell you the truth, It is still a debate on how it was formed.Some of the scientist say this structure was formed due to symmetrical uplifting of ‘underlying geology’. Hence, due to the thousands of years of erosion.But some say it was formed by a meteor impact! (wow such a big point of view..but to see the scale,and shape it does make sense rite? haha) Some of them even say it was formed by a really big nuclear blast.(Gulp! in ancient world? Hmm this is interesting.)
Due to its significantly noticeable location and its wondrous shape, it has attracted attention since the earliest space missions.(i think even amstrong can spotted this "eye" haha).The "eye" have diameter is about 50 kilometres.Yes it is very big..that why you can spot this place from space.For those who like nature and bizzare form,this is a lifetime experience.The structure has a gigantic appeal to it and seems more alive than just a Richat structure by itself ! For its- one in the world shape and geological importance.
Well Be sure to bring a lot of water if you do plan to go there...(its in sahara rite?haha).Until next time mate! This sahara thing makin me thirty...a jug of lemonade wont be enough haha.Hope you do enjoy it! later.:)
