There’s something strange lurking in the depths of the Sahara desert. Dubbed the Richat structure (or the far-cooler nickname, “The Eye of the Sahara”), the circular structure is massive, with a diameter of 40 km. Since most of us will never get the chance to fly over the top of the sucker, check out this gorgeous shot of the Richat structure, photographed by Dutch astronaut Andre Kuipers from the ISS this past March.
