This "mud death star" is a big (around 1 foot in diameter) mud bubble captured at mid-burst using a fast shutter speed. This was part of a much bigger bubbling mud pit outside of Rotorua, New Zealand (Wai-O-Tapu). There were many such mud pits, each with its own interval and resulting shape. Some would bubble fast and not very high while others would erupt every couple minutes with mud spewing many feet into the air.
You may also be interested in my Champagne Pool on Mars photo which was also taken in the same area.
