I made the article status "outline" since we probably need an address, phone, or other locator for the Eat and Sleep entries for it to be usable. --Evan 19:17, 16 Feb 2006 (EST)
Makhtesh Ramon is *not* a crater. This is a unique geological phenomenon, and it's scientific name is actually "Makhtesh", as it is unique to the Negev desert and northern Sinai. There are probably only 6 known "Makhteshim" is the world, including the 3 larger ones (Ramon, Hagadol and Hakatan) and two tiny ones in mount Arif, and another one (who's name I don't know) in northern Sinai, close to the border with Israel.
It is not a crater because it is not man-made or created by an impact - but through slow erosion in unique conditions. I found this article in Wikipedia, and this in the Hebrew Wikipedia. None are very informative.
If there are no objections, I will try to fix the article later. --Shahar 06:15, 23 December 2006 (EST)
Aren't they in Dimona, and not Mitzpe Ramon? Shahar 16:22, 24 December 2006 (EST)
