I couldn't find this anywhere on ATS from a quick search, so here ya go folks:




That stunning portrait is a composite of real images taken by Voyager and some more fanciful additions done by amateur astronomer Rolf Wahl Olsen.

To make this shot, Rolf used the actual images of the planet’s crescent disk from Voyager, tweaking them a bit to enhance the cloud features. To add the rings, he used very long exposures to model their density profile, then added them to the planet picture. He added a shot of the moon Triton taken by Voyager 2 a few days after the Neptune encounter, taking care to place it about where it would’ve been seen from this angle. Finally, he added background stars based on the position of Voyager and the angle at which it was seeing Neptune.


A Hex on Neptune - read that link please.

So I expect everyone knows about the Hexagon at Saturn's north pole, but very few people know about the one that apparently exists at Neptune's south pole - and that's likely because we don't have as many great photographs of Neptune as we do of Saturn. That is because the recent Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn gave us some extremely detailed data, whereas the Neptune photographs are from Voyager 2 which visited Neptune in August 1989 (Voyager 2 was launched in 1977).

This composite apparently shows a very low resolution image that may corroborate the above depiction of a Hexagon with 6 distinct sides.


I also found this image interesting because it seemingly shows distinct auroral activity.


So here's a challenge for you ATS - can you find a Hexagon on Uranus? I can't find any decent quality photography but maybe someone who has better access can?

In the second post I've got a few bonuses for ya...

Bonus info :::

Anyways, did you know about this photograph of the vortex in the middle of the Saturn Hexagon?

Isn't that unbelievable?

Also here are interesting hexagon shaped meteor craters on the moons Tethys and Mimas, I concede the Mimas one might be a pentagon and Tethys might be a heptagon though. It's hard to tell for me at least.






Why Nature Prefers Hexagons is a decent article worth glancing over as it shows some examples.

Here is a wiki on Tetrahedrons, and if you want to know some of the more bizarre theories relating to this geometric shape, Google this terminology : "tetrahedron physics 19.5". I don't agree fully with Hoagland's views but it's at least worth considering and reviewing. Here's a link to someone discussing his theory a little bit - 19.5 and Hyperdimensional physics


This latitude corresponds, on a planetary scale, to possible sources of immense energy from the internal regions of a planet. For example: 1) Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii, 2) Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl volcanoes near Mexico City, 3) the absolutely huge Mare Orientale on the Moon’s far side (but near the edge of the Earth-side/far-side interface), 4) Olympus Mons on the planet Mars, (the solar system’s largest volcano), 5) the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, 6) the Great Blue Spot on Neptune, and so forth, are all located at or very near to 19.5° latitude. In addition, The Great Pyramids of the Sun and Moon at Teotihuacan, Mexico are also located near this latitude, suggesting the ancient architects may have had an inkling of this “energy source”.


Basically they just throw two tetrahedrons onto each other to create this interesting figure reminiscent of the hexagon / hexagram symbolism, and Hoagland seems to believe this is a very important correlation with all of these astronomical and geological features.

I propose there is also a Hexagon on Uranus...
Look very closely...

What do you guys/gals think? Anyone know more about theories explaining how this feature is possible? Did anyone think there was hexagons on Neptune or Uranus already? Have any cool photos to share?

I guess you folks are just speechless lol, so here's a wiki with some theories:
Saturn's Hexagon

Scroll down a bit for proposed explanations.

it's part of the frequency control grid locking us into this paradigm

this rabbit hole is actually really deep I reccomend looking into saturnalia

I've read a lot about Saturnalia, and written about it as well.

What does the ancient festival have to do with a physics phenomena you refer to as the frequency control grid and how does this lock us into this paradigm?

It's beautiful for sure
I don't know enough about it to comment specifically except to say, nature is an amazing thing!

Wow you're a real jerk today huh?

I refuse to get over it. I want to understand it.

Surprised it is not a octagonal shape being the eighth planet


Nice find

Hexagons happen when a normally circular feature experiences pressure or resistance from all sides. Bees' honeycomb cells start out circular, but become hexagons as their walls mold together. It's nature's way to fill up space as efficiently as possible.

If that's so than maybe mimas and tethys once were gasious too?

It's thought to be a result of fluid dynamics.

The interactions of groups pf swiling eddies rotating around a common point can cause such shapes, as seen recreated in this lab experiment here:

gather 7 marbles, or coins, anything you have 7 of that are round with the same radius, on a surface pile them into as near a space to each other as you physically can, notice the hexagon?
you cant do this with any other shape, spheroids naturally form a hexagon when their sizes are symmetrical, its only disorder of sizes that can change that.

in other words if we saw anything other then a hexagon is when we would be real confused and interested in studying it



to illustrate what i mean about the marbles,



a pure snowflake is always a hexagon for the same reason, however impurities such as dust particles introduced to a storm cloud can throw in the disorder needed to make the rare asymmetrical snowflake.

Great way to illustrate this, thank you.

A circle (or a sphere in 3D) is the most efficient way to fill up an area.

When you have many circles vying for space, hexagons is nature's way to cram as many of them into as little space as possible, without any space wasted.

Very interesting but in that composite picture I’m seeing a pentagon. There a appear to be 5 beams of light coming from the centre and 5 sides to the central blue disk as well. Though it is quite blurry.

If you cut an apple in half the seeds form a pentagon too, so it’s not like this shape doesn’t occur in nature.

Sacred geometry is worth looking into IMO.

Besides, it's not "weather" but "whether", if we decide to be pedantic and "get over it".

So why aren't there any features like this on Jupiter?

Any ideas about that? Your thoughts would be appreciated, thanks!
