Check out the most mysterious discoveries in the sahara desert!
This top 10 list shows some of the most bizarre and unexplained mysteries that the sahara is hiding from us!
7. Desert Cones
The thing about secrets is that once they’re uncovered, they’re not a secret anymore. But, near El Gouna, Egypt, in the sands that surround the area, there is a “secret” that keeps getting rediscovered. You see, in 2014, people used Google Maps to look at the Sahara Desert and its surrounding areas and noticed some odd cone shaped markings in the sand. As they zoomed out, they noticed a massive pattern that was too precise to be random.
6. The Nabta Stones
When it comes to building things that are theoretically impossible for the times, the Egyptians hold the record. In southern Egypt there are ancient megalithic structures that are believed to be a type of calendar circle.
5. It’s Not Exactly What You Think
Let’s start off with some interesting facts about the Sahara Desert that you might not have known. For example, even though it is considered the largest desert on Earth, that’s technically not true. Antarctica is scientifically a desert too, a snow desert, but one nonetheless.
4. The Magic Lake
When you are dehydrated and have been wandering around the desert for a while, you might start seeing things that are aren’t there, like a lake. A mirage can be very deadly depending on how you react to it. But, imagine people’s surprise when an actual lake appeared near Tunisia in 2014, and not only was it real, it was massive.
3. Desert Glass
Glass is something you most likely see every single day. It’s used to make windows, windshields, glasses, and so many more things. But, you wouldn’t expect to find it in certain places. Like for example, in the worlds’ biggest desert. Yet, that’s exactly what happened.
2. Kingdoms Beneath The Sand
One of the biggest things that the Sahara Desert is known for is it’s sand. It’s everywhere! The sand has helped hide and preserve some interesting secrets. Looking at it from above, we have found some very old secrets.
1. The Eye Of The Sahara
I definitely saved the best for last, because this mystery is something that’s been around for quite some time, but was only discovered once we started taking pictures from space. I give to you, the Eye of the Sahara.
