Looks like a ground down volcano crater, doesn't it? (And there is a younger volcano just to the North-West.)

Cool, thanks!

But what is that strange black hole (located in Lybia, some 500 miles N-N-W from our crater)?

The black hole looks like a gorilla lying on his back, looking to the northwest

The "Strange Black hole" is an ancient volcanic flow, known as Was Namus.

Great! Thank you very much. I've just created an entry for that beauty.
