I’ve always been fascinated by the symmetrical shapes of the honeycomb, but a couple of days ago, I got blown away by an image of the planet Saturn.
The planet Saturn stands out from all the others in our solar system because of it’s beautiful, and mysterious rings, but I have never seen anything like this before. It’s going to be making me wonder for the rest of my life. I like wondering. I think it’s healthy to contemplate about scientific discoveries, even if they don’t seem to make sense.
I’m not sure how I missed reports of this strange phenomenon happening on Saturn, because it’s existence has been known for a long time. New photos have brought it back to light.
I have a website that I visit every day which features pictures and videos of amazing and often mysterious things about the earth and the universe around it, with commentary by scientist’s who give their knowledge or best guesses about the content. This particular entry – February 20 2013 – really made me sit up in my chair.
Apparently Saturn, which has no solid surface, harbors a cloud formation shaped like a hexagon which is large enough to house four earths. It’s not sort-of a hexagon; it’s a hexagon with six equal length sides. But, that’s not all. It rotates and it’s been there for at least 20 years!
What do you think could cause this?
