Richat Structure, Mauritania, 2001 The 31-mile-wide bull’s-eye in the western Sahara is a landmark for astronauts. The structure formed when a volcanic dome hardened and gradually eroded, exposing the onion-like layers of rock. Desert sands appear white and pale yellow at the top left and lower right corners; less sandy, rocky areas are green, and volcanic rocks are blue.
