The Negev has a number of interesting cultural and geological features. Among these are three enormous, craterlike erosion cirques or machteshim, which are unique to the region: ha-Machtesh ha-Gadol ("The Big Crater"), ha-Machtesh ha-Katan ("The Small Crater") and Machtesh Ramon ("Ramon Crater"). The last is the biggest of all, in fact - it is probably the largest natural crater on Earth (it was not formed by asteroid impact).
