The 10 strangest things you’ll find in our solar system
2 – hexagonal Saturn
This is indeed something unusual, as we all know that nature favors forms that work to maximize symmetry, such as spherical shapes. However, this continuous natural phenomenon is manifested in a hexagonal shape around the north pole of Saturn.
This phenomenon was first discovered by the Voyager probe in 1981. Since then, Saturn has become more bright with sunlight, enabling us to capture it in more detail. Scientists say that this hexagonal shape is the result of the atmosphere that creates a spiral due to the troubled nature of the wind pattern on the planet Saturn. However, such a polygon formation was not observed on Jupiter, nor on the South Pole of Saturn.
