The Kazakhstan Pentagram explained

There’s been a lot of buzz online for the past few weeks about a huge mysterious pentagram that was found etched into the ground in the northern part of Kazakhstan. ┬áSome had theorized that it may be a Russian military base or perhaps was the work of a satanic cult. It seems that we finally have an answer, and it’s not as exciting as some may have hoped.


According to archaelogist Emma Usmanova (via NBC News), it’s simply “the outline of a park made in the form of a star”.

    What about it being 666 ft above see level, and 666 ft diameter etc. The are plenty of facts Emma Usmanova forgot to mention.
