This most beautiful place in Africa is also known as The Eye of Africa. This giant, highly erodent and symmetric ball continues to fascinate some scientists. The crater was initially discovered by astronauts taking photos of the desert from outer space.

The main theory behind this wonderful geological formation is that this was the site of a meteorite impact. Others think that it was formed by volcanic activity. The following fact should help you understand why it wasn’t noticed until looked at from outer space. The size of the crater is over 30 miles in diameter. Almost nobody is able to explain what makes the rings equidistant to the center.
