Caption: Ayers Rock. View of the biggest monolith on Earth, Ayers Rock, as seen with a full Moon. Here its vivid red colour is typical when it is seen at sunset. Ayers Rock is located some 300 km south- west of Alice Springs in Northern Territory, Australia. It is 335 metres high with a perimeter of 9 km. Composed mainly of arkose, it is a coarse-grained sandstone rich in undecomposed feldspar. In the language of the native aboriginals it is known as "Uluru" but was later named after Sir Henry Ayers, a former premier of South Australia. Ayers Rock is a sacred and holy site for the indigenous aboriginals and is named frequently in their mythology.
