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."

I see a Seven pointed star and a Five pointed star. What's your point? Hidden system worshipper. We all have been duped to a very sleepy awareness under satanism.

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

Worshiping, says it in the link but it's a good discovery but why has it taken so long for it to show up? Actually, the link says it's just a former soviet park, made in that shape becasue they just happened to like stars.

It's not a satanist symbol, it's a symbol that represents the 5 elements, earth, water, fire, air, and spirit so its captain planet's secret base?
