What is this?

Click on the picture to go to google maps, and head on over to the Sahara desert. Turn on the satellite images and search the desert for the black spot - it shouldn't be too hard to find, as the giant spot, looking like a tear in the fabric of reality, is over 10 miles across. I found it randomly while wandering through the Sahara - the whole desert is fascinating really. Also check out the giant light blue sand wastes in northern Algeria and central Chad.

December Update: Ok, here's the answer. I thought it was a giant open air oil reserve at first, but in fact it is an exotic volcano: Waw an Namus.
