The mysteries that surround us remain to be explained ……
The hand of man?
A symbol of the Taliban?
Some military leviathan,
cold-war tracking of the minuteman?

Notes: “What the devil is it doing there? Mystery of enormous pentagram in Kazakhstan visible on Google earth.” This enormous pentagram etched into the ground next to a lake in an isolated corner of Kazakhstan, has had conspiracy theorists all of a flutter after it appeared on Google Earth. The five-pointed star symbol which measures some 366 metres in diameter, is situated on the southern shore of the Upper Tobol Reservoir in the north of the country. Pentagrams are commonly associated with devil-worship, but are also used in the Bahai religion and Chinese Taoism as well as neopaganists and followers of the Greek mathematician Pythagoras. But quite what the symbol, which is visible on Google Earth here, is doing in such a remote location remains a mystery. While some have jumped to the conclusion that it is obviously the work of a secretive satanic cult, others believe it could be the remains of a Russian military base. One internet user posted on the Live Science website: ‘It’s probably an abandoned surface to air missile site. The shape has something to do with how their tracking radars work.’
