The American astronaut was horrified to find that a”giant eye” appeared on the earth, staring at space
With the continuous progress of human society, our exploration of the earth and even space has been ongoing. It can be said that so far, humans have never stopped exploring. The mystery displayed by the world is not disappointing. No, the United States has discovered such a mysterious and strange phenomenon. Let’s take a look!
In the early 1960s , An American spacecraft performs missions in space. As the spacecraft passed over Africa, astronauts observed a strange phenomenon in the space hundreds of kilometers away from the earth:a round object appeared on the earth, it was like a round eye, dead Staring deadly into space.
After discovering this weird giant eye They were very shocked. Judging from the images taken, the pupil of this giant eye was very realistic, and it was terrifying to think for a long time.
It is divided into 3 layers:the most A circle in the center, like the pupil, has a slightly broken edge; the outer periphery of the”pupil” is a larger circle that tightly surrounds the center circle, like round eyes; the outermost circle , Of course,”eyelid”. What’s more, the outer edge of this large circle also has a lot of loops, as if it were the eyelashes of this”eye”.
So at that time, the astronauts immediately transmitted the picture to the researchers on the ground to let them find out.
The ground staff received this” After the”Bigeye” image, I was very shocked. After careful comparison, it was finally confirmed that this bigeye is located in the largest desert in the world-Mauritania in the southwest of the Sahara Desert in Africa. To find out, the researchers decided to go to the field to find out what is going on, or what secrets are hidden here.
After further exploration, I learned that this The giant eye has a diameter of 48 kilometers and an altitude of about 400 meters. The overall appearance is quite flat, surrounded by some low hills, and far away is a long yellow sand. Because it looks like an eye, it is also called the”eye of Sahara”.
After a lot of exploration, geologists believe that this”giant eye” is a natural phenomenon. It is formed because of terrain elevation and erosion.
Originally, the long yellow sand in Sahara Below, is a hard rock layer. Hundreds of thousands of years ago, due to geological movement, the rocks under the desert were lifted and their heads emerged from the sand. After the rock layer emerged from the ground, under the action of wind, sun and rain, a huge concave gradually formed.
Due to the inconsistent structure of the rock layer , The degree of erosion is also different. Under the same natural conditions, hard rock is less eroded, especially some Paleozoic quartzite with high hardness and not easy to be eroded Basically maintained the original appearance. The softer rocks were severely eroded, forming large pits. Coincidentally, the eroded rock happened to form three concentric circles, and this strange”eye” appeared.
However, some people say that”Don’t buy it”, they still firmly believe that this mysterious”giant eye” is related to the once lost civilization. They believe that the”Saharan Eye” is a lost ancient Atlantean city, and it is a floating city. The reason for the floating city is that the formation of this geological structure must be related to water erosion.
But scientists have no way to answer this , Because these things are beyond the scope of human understanding. However, the editor believes that in the near future, this mysterious giant eye will definitely be unveiled, let us see its”true face”.
