What is the Abyss?

The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. Revelation 9:1-2
            The word “abyss” means bottomless pit.  It’s used seven times in Revelation, always referencing the grave, death and hell.  It’s where Satan and his demons will be thrown for eternity.
