Saturn’s Hexagon

Saturn hosts a bizarre, massive hexagon at it’s northern pole:

The hexagonal cloud pattern is a persistent six-sided jet stream with winds above 300km/h. The sides of the hexagon are about 13,800 km long, which is more than the diameter of Earth.

So, basically, it’s the North Wind (Boreas) from Hyperborea, except bigger and on Kyranos (Saturn). (Oh; and also real life.)

I imagine the astronomers of Khromarium observing the pattern, wondering how it relates to their own hexagonal realm…
