Almost looks like a Chladni pattern. Maybe the winds hit the right note!

New Scientist - Equal Sided Hexagon hovers above saturn!
They clearly state that this has never been seen in nature before.

When I think natural hexagons, I think mudcracks, like you'd find in a dry lakebed. For some reason, the pattern you get when there is contraction in all directions in a thick semi-fluid like mud is somewhat hexagonal.
To have Saturn's thick atmosphere forming a hexagon at the darkened and colder North Pole might actually make sense in that light.

Actually, as much as I hate to agree with you Vagabond, you make a darn good point.
But I ask the question again, assuming that the clouds are similar in nature to the clouds here on earth, meaning that they are gaseous, and can be formed and reformed with winds, what would make them hold a shape like that for decades?

As TheBandit was saying in an earlier post the Golden Ratio which is part of the fibonacci sequence is common in nature.
The honeycomb is a classic example of a hexagon in nature.

Ice crystals are another good example of natural hexagons
It's pretty irrational to automatically assume that this was done by some form of intelligence any more than to assume that every snowflake was designed by an intelligence.
