Astronaut Alex Gerst captured from ISS Uluru, Australia. The photo looks like a ditch or divot for some people and a bump for others, and for you?
Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone rock formation in central Australia, and is one of the country’s most recognisable natural landmarks. The monolith is sacred to the Pitjantjatjara Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The remarkable feature of Uluru is its homogeneity and lack of jointing and parting at bedding surfaces, leading to the lack of development of scree slopes and soil.
The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
