MYSTERIES OF HEXAGON SATURN:
Solar system still remains a mystery for astronomers, explorers and researchers even though they are discovering new stars and planets that orbits with the solar system and outside the galaxy. Earth and other planets which orbits around the sun comes under solar system and the solar system that human beings see now comes under Milky Way galaxy. Each and every planet in this solar system is unique and carries different colors on their body which are nothing but scattered dusts.
Saturn which is the sixth planet from the sun and the second-largest in the solar system is a gas giant. The distance from the Saturn and the Sun is around 1.4 billion km. This wonderful planet which is far away from the earth and the sun has 62 known moons and other tiny moonlets. Titan is the largest moon which orbits around the Saturn. NASA which is one of the most popular astronomical institutes in the world very often conducts outer space probes and sends several types of machines to inner space. Saturn’s hexagon shape was first discovered by Voyage mission that took place during the year 1981 and once again NASA sent cassini spacecraft during 2006 to extract more details about the hexagon shape which was formed o the north pole of Saturn planet. Photos taken by cassini space craft revealed several interesting facts about the hexagon shape.
COLOR PATTERN INSIDE THE HEXAGON:
There were rumors mills that were spreading everywhere that Aliens where the ones which created this hexagon shape and this news is creating shock waves in every country. But the truth is that there is only cloud patterns that form within the hexagon and these colors were changing regularly from 2012 to 2016 according to cassini space craft. One theory is that the sunlight is creating haze as the pole is exposed to sunlight. Scientists after lots of researches and examinations have revealed to the world that it is only air current that has created the hexogen shape. Winds below the cloud level keep the shape of the hexagon sharp and control the rate at which the hexagon drifts. Sources reveal that bright clouds at the outer edge of the hurricane are travelling at 330 mph. This six-sided hexagon is believed to be made of a band of upper-atmospheric winds. Even now, many international institutes and other scientific research organizations are exploring the Saturn and finding out many interesting info about Saturn and its shapes. This hexagon which is more than twice the diameter of the Earth is a wavy jet stream of 200 mph winds and spans 25000 miles across. Researchers have also opined that the hexagon and its streams are the manifestations of a Rossby wave which is similar to those that are formed on this earth. Astronomers are also finding about the hidden atmosphere that is prevailing on this planet as they sense hexogen motion on the northern point.
