I have only just read this article. Have not checked the author's links as yet. Thought some of you might be intrigued. - edgarblythe

http://www.naturalnews.com/028797_Saturn_hexagon.html

NaturalNews) Here at NaturalNews, we normally report on Earthly events, but right now some rather grand events are taking place in our solar system that you may want to know about.

For starters, there's the odd fact that one of Jupiter's huge red stripes -- which is really a massive storm system many times larger than planet Earth -- has suddenly disappeared (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...). Known as the "Southern Equatorial Belt", this storm system isn't exactly permanent: Jupiter's belts undergo striking transformations every 10 - 15 years, according to astronomers.

Far more bizarre and mysterious is something that NASA's Cassini spacecraft first noticed in 2007. There is a large rotating hexagon circling the north pole of Saturn. (http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/c...)

This isn't some conspiracy theory. It's not some sort of far-fetched interpretation of random organic structure. It is quite clearly a massive hexagon, and it's circling the north pole of Saturn as we speak. And by "massive", I mean this hexagon is larger than the planet Earth.

Straight from the NASA website: "This is a very strange feature, lying in a precise geometric fashion with six nearly equally straight sides," said Kevin Baines, atmospheric expert and member of Cassini's visual and infrared mapping spectrometer team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. "We've never seen anything like this on any other planet. Indeed, Saturn's thick atmosphere where circularly-shaped waves and convective cells dominate is perhaps the last place you'd expect to see such a six-sided geometric figure, yet there it is."

The hexagon, according to NASA, is 60 miles thick (deep) and an astonishing 15,000 miles wide.

That means four Earths would fit inside it. Yes, it's really that big. And of course, it seems entirely unnatural. Clouds don't form hexagon shapes and then maintain those structures as the edges orbit the center. Looking at this shape, it is difficult to explain it as "natural."

But that's not all there is to see here.


The all-seeing eye pyramid inside the hexagon
As I was studying this animation from NASA, something struck me as particularly interesting. Inside the hexagon there's a three-sided pyramid shape. It appears quite clearly as a lighter-shade triangle set against the background of the hexagon. Imagine a pyramid placed on top of the hexagon and you'll see it.

There's even more: Inside the pyramid is the shape of the all-seeing eye. You can clearly see it in the center of the pyramid shape, which is inside the hexagon.

Here's a still image from the NASA animation: http://www.naturalnews.com/images/S...

In it, you can just barely make out the shape of an inverted pyramid, plus two concentric circles in the center. Here's an overlay of lines showing the structure of the pyramid, plus the all-seeing eye: http://www.naturalnews.com/images/S...

Now here's where this gets even more bizarre...


The all-seeing eye and the pyramid
Do you recognize this all-seeing eye with the pyramid? If not, just whip out a dollar bill from your pocket and glance at the back. There it is!

Yes, your U.S. currency contains the exact same image: An all-seeing eye, centered inside the top of the pyramid, looking over you from the back of a dollar bill.

Here's a zoomed-in image showing you this from the back of a U.S. dollar bill: http://www.naturalnews.com/images/D...


Reality check
Please note what you're thinking right now as you're reading this. So far, I have not presented anything other than what is evident. There is a spinning hexagon of clouds on Saturn's north pole. Inside the hexagon is a triangle (pyramid). Inside the triangle are two concentric circles that look a lot like a human eye.

This shape looks a whole lot like the pyramid with the all-seeing eye on the back of the U.S. dollar.

Notice I haven't mentioned anything about any conspiracy, or aliens, or anything of that kind. These are just observations of the world around us.

Granted, they are fascinating observations. In fact, if you told most people what I've printed here in this article so far, they would think you were absolutely nuts.

And yet all I've done so far is republished NASA photos from the Cassini spacecraft and shown pictures from the back of U.S. currency. I've also pointed out some eerie similarities between the two.

But anyone with half a brain, upon seeing these pictures, would begin to wonder: Is this just a coincidence? And why is there a 15,000-mile wide spinning hexagon on Saturn in the first place?

I've mentioned this to quite a few people, and no one I talked to was even aware of this. So what's it doing there?


Natural phenomenon or intelligent design?
There are really one two possibilities for explaining the giant hexagon on Saturn: It is either a natural phenomenon or it was intelligently designed. (Well, I suppose there's a third possibility: That the whole thing is some sort of grand NASA hoax and the pictures were faked... but to what end?)

I can't wait to see the debates about this on our Facebook page, by the way, because "intelligently designed" could include anything: God, an alien race, a supernatural being, a previous Earthly civilization, a civilization from a parallel universe... who knows?

"Intelligently designed" means some conscious, intelligent being (or group of beings) intentionally created it. If so, you'd have to wonder: For what purpose? What would a giant spinning hexagon on Saturn actually accomplish?


Cymatics and the physical structure of sound
The far more likely explanation for the giant hexagon on Saturn may be that it is a natural phenomenon. And the only phenomenon I'm familiar with that might explain this involves the field of cymatics.

Cymatics is the study of how sound can alter the physical structure of materials, creating interesting structural patterns. To see this for yourself, you can turn a stereo speaker on its edge (with the speaker facing up), then place a liquid pudding of corn starch and water on top of a layer of plastic wrap, on top of the speaker. When you crank up the music, the corn starch creates bizarre and fascinating shapes due to the expression of the structure of the sound.

See an example of this "DIY cymatics" on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaYv...

I've been thinking that the giant hexagon on Saturn could theoretically be caused by very low-frequency sound waves emanating from some sort of geological action on the planet's surface. Perhaps these sound waves are being focused toward the north pole of the planet in much the same way that earthquake shockwaves can "bounce" off subterranean geological features. These sound waves could theoretically create a "cymatic" effect that we're seeing as a giant hexagon swirling around the pole.

It sounds far-fetched, I know. But not nearly as far-fetch as "aliens built it." When it comes to bizarre phenomena like this, all the explanations sound far-fetched.

You can come up with your own theory to explain all this, of course. But make no mistake: There is a giant hexagon of clouds 15,000 miles wide swirling around the north pole of Saturn, and even NASA has no idea why or how it got there. Who or what maintains the hexagon structure and keeps the clouds swirling in a six-sided geometric pattern?

Or is this a "natural" event taking place on a massive scale? If it's natural, it would demonstrate that nature can create some astonishingly complex (and large-scale) designs in the worlds around us. That's particularly interesting because the FDA believes nature is incapable of creating even a single plant-based nutrient that has any beneficial effect whatsoever on the human body.

There's a lot of denial in Washington about the power and "creativity" of nature. Maybe those folks should look toward the heavens and take note of what's really happening in our universe... because some of it is pretty darned spectacular.

Just ask NASA.

Please let us know YOUR thoughts on this giant hexagon on Saturn. Is it a NATURAL event? Was it created by MAN? Was it put there by GOD? Is it an elaborate NASA HOAX?

@edgarblythe,
I don't know if this is timely or shapely but it's definitely beautiful and intriguing (the hexagon shaped cloud despite its possibility to be a hoax). Thanks for the scientific heads up EB! Very Happy

As for this seeing the triangle that's not really there but there? I think this guy is a potential douchebag/conartist to spend the majority of the article on this nonsubject and to start up some kind of intelligent design based debate (no matter how allegedly neutral or objective his involvement is in the future discussion is supposed to be).

What nonsense is this guy spouting?!

He seems to lack a bit of scientific discipline with this major irrelevant and possibly inaccurate non sequitur against the FDA.

Edgar, that photo is fantastic! Thanks for posting it.

I know you don't want this to become an argument about the FDA or alternative medicine, but the guy who surmizes all sorts of pseudo-science explanations never uses any source for his personal explanations, he just copies and pastes quotes from NASA. So, the guy and his site at Natural News, appears very commercial (see all the ads).

What is truly spectacular are the bizzare shapes and actions to be found in space that are quite real as studied and photographed by NASA and other legitimate scientific organizations. They, however, do not make assumptions or try to see unlikely sign of aliens in the gaseous clouds. They simply share our own awe of what can be found outside our little world and do their best to come to a scientific explanation.

This is all so amazingly beautiful that making imaginary suppositions seems to cheapen the entire subject.

I hope that I haven't angered you, my friend, but I can't stop myself from mentioning my feelings of dismay at arbitrary conclusions.

I posted the article because it is the only one I had seen that even tells about the shapes. I still think they are worthy of a thread.

Its not even a real hexagon.
It is however interesting that a natural force or combination of forces can create such a phenomenon.

By looking at all these images on a single page, it seems the shape changes.

Hexagonal shapes are not only not unusual in nature, they are common. Crystals form at the microscopic level, and the classic crystalline structure gets repeated at higher levels. So, you get hexagonal shapes in the just barely sub-microscopic level . . .

http://tomwhelan.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/img_1620icebw.jpg

. . . and you get them at much "higher" levels, like these naturally occuring basalts off the coast of Ireland.

@Setanta,
the basalt hexagons are a good xample of how energetic systems, when "relaxing" will fracture or settle down in a pattern that is uniformly at constant angles from all the stresses in a 3-d medium . Hexagons are the perfect shape for cracks and crystals, thats why we seem em in ice fields, pogons, mudcracks, basalt, silica crystals, and organic compounds

From the NASA site:
Quote:
The hexagon appears to have remained fixed with Saturn's rotation rate and axis since first glimpsed by Voyager 26 years ago. The actual rotation rate of Saturn is still uncertain.


http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/cassini/media/cassini-20070327.html

So...We have known about this hexagonal thing for almost three decades. (I also learned that winter there lasts 15 years. Oh boy, that's a lot of shoveling.)

so.. fifty years from now we land on Saturn and the Saturnians come out and say "Christ, it took you long enough. We sent you the rotating hexagonal signal two years ago (remember, their seasons last 15 years) and we got no answer! We thought probably you were still all in the jellyfish stage."

It's a little difficult to understand them because they are so tall, just under a 100 miles each, and it difficult to read their lips which are also about 100 miles wide.

I did a thread on it three years ago...so it's been known about a while longer than that, I imagine.

Edit: The article I quoted from says it's been known about since the eighties.

It suggests to me that since Saturn is very cold some form of crystallization of the gases has occurred but it is floating on ice-like surface.
