Mystery pentagram shows up on Google Earth

The perplexing symbol appeared on Google's online map of a remote region of Kazakhstan.
While some undeniably strange things have turned up on Google Earth over the years, the discovery of a large five-sided pentagram near the village of Aktau in Kazakhstan is proving to be one of the most perplexing.

The symbol is approximately 200m in diameter and appears to be made up from several criss-crossing tracks etched in to the ground. Some believe that the pentagram's mysterious appearance holds superstitious significance.

It isn't the first pentagram to be discovered in the region either, earlier this year another was discovered 12 miles from the town of Lisakovsk.

At the time, one of the most prominent theories originated from pilot Kurt Yates who claimed that the shape was an abandoned surface to air missile site from the Soviet era. Archeologist Emma Usmanova later contested this idea, instead claiming that it was one of many parks from the 1970s that were designed in the shape of a star.

With no definitive explanation forthcoming however it is likely that Kazakhstan's enigmatic pentagrams will continue to remain a mystery for some time to come.

Im not debating anything, I just said it was redundant and someone asked me to explain why. Now in Alchemy: Fire = Will Water = Emotions Air = Thought Earth = corporeality (Roughly) = 4 All these are joined in the human psyche which I think is what you mean in human terms. All symbolic of course My sources stem from the Golden Dawn, But this is just basic stuff, 101. OK thanks. Your source is not the same as mine.

I wouldn't laugh. They could well have been one and the same. Why wouldn't you laugh?

Why wouldn't you laugh? In days of old ET and the devil could well have been regarded as one and the same.

If anybody found this pentagram, it would be appreciated if you could take a screenshot which includes the area around the pentagram as the photo given on the site is useless, it could be anywhere... From the article: "The symbol etched on uninhabited lands of Western Kazakhstan can be found at +4343'46.07'' +5107'43.02'' on the Google Maps"

Or...Star Fruit: One may well ask why is it the case? Is it random? Does the 5 pointed star have some special significance where flora is concerned? It bears investigation I believe.

All I have to say about this is Kick-Ass. Don't know why someone would waste time to do this, but it looks cool. Someone ought to use this as an album cover. Or maybe Borat did this.

I'm amazed how people just come across such things on Google Maps. No one finds anything on Apple maps I just wish maps had a little more suface detail, the feds can see a dime but we get a blurry mess, kinda hinders exploring a bit.
