In case you didn’t know already, the Eye of the Sahara or the Richat Structure has been considered to be a scientific mystery for a very long time now. Its strange shape is oftentimes considered to be a result of someone having interacted with it in ancient times, but recent studies have proven otherwise.
Originally the theory stated that the Eye of the Sahara was caused by a large meteorite coming down on Earth and leaving the scorch marks all around the area, but since no such meteorite was ever discovered here it was later on decided that it was the sedimentary rocks that caused the shape in the first place.
These sedimentary rocks eroded with time which caused the shape to appear seemingly out of nowhere.
But another theory states that this structure was actually caused by the heating up of the tectonic plates over 100 million years ago. As we know, in prehistoric times a cataclysmic event happened that broke the supercontinent Pangea apart, creating two continents that we know today as South America and Africa.
As the tectonic plates were pushing up the formation was created by the seismic effects of the rocks.
But new developments may actually prove that this was done deliberately by ancient civilizations as a means to cover up the Lost City of Atlantis after all. Ancient texts by Plato describe the Eye of Sahara as being the place where we will find the city buried under.
If that is the case we need to get to digging, but since the place is protected by law, we have our hands and feet tied behind our backs, or so it seems.
