The 16th century Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan and his crew had plenty of time to study the southern sky during the first circumnavigation of planet Earth. 
As a result, two fuzzy cloud-like objects easily visible to southern hemisphere skygazers are known as the Clouds of Magellan, now understood to be satellite galaxies of our much larger, spiral Milky Way galaxy. The prominent patch just left of center is 30 Doradus, also known as the magnificent Tarantula Nebula, is a giant star-forming region about 1,000 light-years across.

Have you ever seen a little rainbow off to the side of the Sun?
Sundogs are just sunlight refracting through hexagonal falling ice crystals in the Earth’s atmosphere. When thin ice crystals flitter down nearly horizontally, they best refract sunlight sideways and create sundogs.

The Richat Structure in the Sahara Desert of Mauritania is easily visible from space because it is nearly 50 kilometers across. 
The possibility that the Richat Structure was formed by a volcanic eruption also seems improbable because of the lack of a dome of igneous or volcanic rock. The above image was captured by the ASTER instruments onboard the orbiting orbiting Terra satellite. Why the Richat Structure is nearly circular remains a mystery.
