NASA Captures Yin-Yang Crater On Turkey’s Mount Nemrut

NASA’s International Space Station captured an image of a unique crater on Mount Nemrut, a dormant stratovolcano in Turkey. The crater, resembling a yin-yang symbol, features a stark contrast between solidified lava and a water-filled lake. The formation resulted from a major eruption approximately 250,000 years ago, which also led to the creation of Lake Van, Turkey’s largest lake. This discovery highlights the geological significance and natural beauty of Mount Nemrut, encouraging further studies and monitoring of volcanic activity.
