Okay, have you seen that weird hexagon thing on Saturn that was released last week?Â It has got to be one of the strangest things weâ€™ve seen on another planet since the famous Face on Mars.Â A giant, nearly perfect hexagon formation has been spotted at the ringed planetâ€™s northern pole.Â The entire object is rotating with the winds at the pole in a circular pattern and measures nearly 15,000 miles across.Â Four entire Earthâ€™s could fit inside the shape!Â Perhaps the strangest thing about it is that this isnâ€™t the first time it has been seen.Â The Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecrafts that were launched in 1977 both captured pictures of the hexagonal shape in their visits to Saturn in 1980 and 1981 respectively.Â While the images were thought odd at that time, they certainly didnâ€™t think it was anything that would last more than a quarter of a century later, but it has.Â The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft captured the most recent photographs and video of this bizarre rotating shape when it passed over Saturnâ€™s northern pole in October 2006.
So, what exactly is this thing?Â How is it possible that a perfectly formed hexagon (a six-side object) could just be swirling around the pole of a planet without any sort of structural change in nearly 25 years?Â Well, donâ€™t ask the scientists, because they donâ€™t know either.Â According to NASA atmosphere expert Kevin Baines, â€œweâ€™ve never seen anything like this on any other planet,â€ and Saturn is â€œperhaps the last place youâ€™d expect to see such a six-sided geometric figure, yet there it is.â€Â Well, if they donâ€™t know what it is, who the heck does?Â Is it an alien civilization? Â Is it a machine or a building?Â Is it a message from beyond?Â Is it a crop circle?Â Is it the answer to world peace?Â Inquiring minds want to know!
Remember how there was a giant monolith found on the moon in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey?Â The U.S./British governments secretly covered up the discovery from the other so-called partner governments, particularly Russia, and lied about how there was some sort of disease outbreak.Â Then they launched a secret manned mission to investigate the alien messages that were being sent to the monolith from Jupiter.Â Well, I wouldnâ€™t be surprised if something similar to that fictional tale would occur in real life if some alien intelligence was really discovered on a nearby planet.Â Wouldnâ€™t you?Â While Iâ€™m sure weâ€™ll be fed some sort of â€œnatural phenomenonâ€ explanation in the next few months or years, how will we really know what our government is doing if it is some sort of message from the outer reaches of the solar system?Â Should we just trust them?Â I donâ€™t think so.Â And why havenâ€™t we heard about this object the first time it was seen in the 80s?Â I sure donâ€™t recall it being talked about it before.Â Youâ€™d think that would be on every conspiracy site out there along with all the other UFO reports.
Consider the recent release of the previously secret French UFO files. Â Why exactly are these records kept secret from the public in the first place?Â Last I checked, my tax dollars paid for the resources that gather and investigate these sorts of unknown phenomenon.Â Why are our UFO files kept secret?Â Sure, thereâ€™s the Freedom of Information Act that supposedly allows anyone to request these reports, but they usually come marked out in black ink or unavailable when you do request them.Â If thereâ€™s nothing to hide, why are they going so out of their way to make it look like theyâ€™re hiding something?Â Just like everything else theyâ€™re seemingly hiding from us!Â All Iâ€™m saying is that something like this, while it could have a perfectly logical explanation, will probably end up being buried under a pile of bureaucratic nonsense just like all the other things the government seems to want to hide from the public for â€œour own good.â€Â Keep an eye on this story and see if it ever sees the light of day again because itâ€™s just too weird to ignore!
