There is a geological phenomenon in southern Israel called Ramon Crater. Although it is called a crater, it is not a meteor impact crater or a volcanic crater, but a depression created by erosion. It is often called the Grand Canyon of Israel. Ramon Crater is 40 meters long, 2 to 10 kilometers wide, and up to 500 meters deep. Since only Mitzpe Ramon is nearby, light pollution is minimal, so stargazing is popular. Ramon Crater is located in the middle of the desert, but don't be fooled by this, as this place is one of the coldest in Israel.
