This incredible image is taken of the Darvaza Gas Crater is in Derweze, Turkmenistan. Its proper name is the Darvaza Gas Crater, but many call it the “Door to Hell.” This is the only hole on fire and continues to burn more than four decades later.

That’s right, the Soviet scientists allegedly hit gas during a drilling accident, which set the hole on fire and the result has yet to be extinguished. Darvaza Gas Crater is 225 feet wide and 99 feet deep. You can see the glow it emits from a mile away.
