In the 1960s, a NASA spacecraft was traveling in space. When the spacecraft flew over Africa, the astronauts were in the distance A very strange sight was seen above the earth hundreds of kilometers in space.

There is a circular unidentified structure in the southwest of the Sahara Desert. It looks like a huge eye staring into the dark space, making people shudder. It is difficult for us to imagine that there is such a weird structure on the earth. This weird eye is called the”Saharan Eye” by humans.

It is located in Mauritania in the southwestern part of the Sahara Desert in Africa. The diameter reaches an astonishing 48 kilometers and the altitude It is about 400 meters high, and such a large area makes it difficult for us to see its entire appearance on the earth. It is not until humans fly into space that they can really see its appearance.

According to the photos and videos taken by human probes in space, we can clearly see that the Sahara’s Eye is actually a huge concentric circle with a very flat center and some low hills around it. And farther away is the yellow sand, so why is it called the Eye of the Sahara?

From the morphological point of view, it is divided into three layers. The circle in the center looks like a human pupil, but the edge on one side is somewhat damaged, and the so-called pupil periphery is a larger one. The circle that surrounds the center of the circle tightly, like a round eyeball, and the large circle on the outermost periphery seems to be a human eyelid, and the most surprising is the outer part of the large circle. There are strands of rings, like the eyelashes of this eye. Therefore, because of its unique structure, it is called the eye of the Sahara by humans. It is like the eye of the earth, looking at the deep space. People shudder.

So what exactly is the Eye of the Sahara and how is it formed?

Actually, in essence, the Eye of the Sahara is a peculiar geological structure. In the initial stage, scientists believed that such a huge geological structure was most likely to come from the impact of a meteorite. Meteorites from outside the sky hit the Sahara Desert above the earth hundreds of thousands of years ago and even millions of years ago, and finally hit a huge eye here.

However, according to the latest research by geologists, the Sahara’s Eye is a Richard structure formed by erosion. Therefore, this”eye” is formed by terrain uplift and erosion at the same time.

However, due to the age, the origin of the Sahara Eye has been unable to verify how it was born and what kind of stories it has experienced. We have not yet known, but he has become a human being. One of the most spectacular sights of the Earth seen from space, weird, mysterious and spectacular.
