The 'Eye of Africa' seen from space
French ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet aboard the International Space Station (ISS) has taken this stunning image of the wondrous spirals of the ‘Eye of Africa’, also known as the Richat structure.

The incredible structure, located in the Sahara desert in Mauritania, has a diameter of 50km (31 miles) and was originally thought to be a meteorite-impact crater. Scientists now believe, however, it was formed through erosion, reports RT.
