Giant pentragram discovered in the desert

Google Earth photographs show the presence of a huge pentagram in a remote region of Kazakhstan.

The five-pointed star is clearly visible on the shore of the Upper Tobol Reservoir and is situated at least 12 miles from the nearest village. Measuring over 1,200 feet across the giant symbol has been subject to numerous conspiracy theories and linked to several nefarious religious sects. The truth however may be far more benign thanks to the research of one archaeologist, Emma Usmanova, who set out to investigate the discovery.

As it turns out, the area is nothing more than an old park built in the shape of a star, something that was used a lot in the design of flags, monuments and facades during the Soviet era.

"Conspiracy theorists, start your engines: On the wind-blown steppes of central Asia, in an isolated corner of Kazakhstan, there's a large pentagram etched into the Earth's surface."

The star was for a Young Pioneer camp that was not completed by end of Soviet Union. Perhaps I should have said this several pages ago, well......

It's not a satanist symbol, it's a symbol that represents the 5 elements, earth, water, fire, air, and spirit
