    Eye of the Sahara Central Mauritania, Sahara Desert The Richat Structure, as it is more formally known, is not one of the official wonders of the world but this natural sight is most definitely wondrous. At 40 kilometres in diameter, this impressive geological structure can be seen from outer space and has been dubbed the Eye of the Sahara. A kimberlitic plug (a type of volcanic plug) has been found in the northern part of the structure and is estimated to be over 99 million years old.

    "The eye of Africa, Mauritania ~ From space this mysterious shape in the Sahara Desert in Mauritania, really looks like the human eye. According to one theory, the eye was created when a meteor fell on the earth, while others believe it is a trace of an underground nuclear explosion. Currently there is no country in the world that possesses weapons that can do nearly that much of a blast." | 10 NATURAL PHENOMENA OF THE WORLD – PART 2
