Holy Geometric Shapes, Batman!

The Cassini spacecraft has taken some really interesting pics of Saturn. Check out this one of the planet's north polar region. The clouds seem to form a hexagon shape!

The strange shape has been noticed before, by the Voyager probes over 20 years ago (it is apparently a long-lasting phenomenon), but never with this pic's perspective and clarity.

Simply amazing!
