Saturns hexagon
« on: July 30, 2009, 12:16:02 AM »
I first heard about it while watching 'The Universe'. It's been there to see for 2 NASA missions showing that it has stayed for a long time. I think it's cool that USand actually shows it if you look at the north pole of Saturn.  :)

Any ideas as to why it is there? And how it's staying for so long?

I watch the universe too. :D

Though, It could've been their after years when Saturn formed. I think it used to be circular, but over time it came with the hexagon, I don't know about the south pole though.

I get the Astronomy Magazine Videos, which are the show "The Universe".
