Cygnus X-1 Cave


Cygnus X-1 Cave is located within the north-eastern corner of a large chasm and is made up of fractured solid basalt. The floor is covered with blocks – some large. Two very short arms branch off from the main chamber, one leading to a steep descent. The ceiling reaches a height of 2.4 meters. There is a pohutakawa tree trunk growing near the entrance.
