A massive pentagram in Kazakhstan was recently discovered by satellites, causing a viral stir as conspiracy fanatics struggle to explain its existence.

The bizarre five-point formation is located at the southern shore of the Upper Tobol Reservoir and measures an astonishing 1,200 feet wide and is outlined with a circle. According to satellite images, the prominent star is located at a remote area at least 12 miles east of the closest settlement of Lisakovsk.

According to LiveScience, the regions near Lisakovsk are rich with ancient archaeological ruins. In fact, cemeteries dating back to the Bronze Age are known to exist in the area, many of which have yet to be explored.

However, the diverse amount of anthropological specimens in the area raises more questions than it answers about the mysterious pentagram, as the ancient symbol possesses many different meanings for many different cultures and religions over centuries of time.

The pentagram symbol dates as far back as 3000 BC as the definition of "UB" in Mesopotamian literature. Babylonians also used the pentagram as an astrological symbol that represents the five planets Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Saturn, and Venus.

During the fifth century BC, Pythagoreans called the pentagram ὑγιεία or Hugieia, the Greek Goddess of Health. In early geometry, the pentagram was regarded as a "mathematically perfect" star polygon.

Later, the pentagram became a Christian symbol for the five wounds of Christ. Believers claim the pentagrams offer protection against demons.

More infamously, the downward-pointing pentagram, most similar in formation to the Pentagram in Kazakhstan, is a symbol of Satanism. In Satanism, a pentagram is drawn with two points up within a double circle. A goat's head is also featured inside the pentagram. The downward-pointing pentagram symbolizes the rejection of Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

So what exactly does the Pentagram in Kazakhstan represent? Is it truly an object of Satanic worship?

Archaelogist Emma Usmanova, a specialist with years of experience in the Lisakovsk region, reveals the truth behind the pentagram in Kazakhstan: it is an abandoned Soviet-era park.

"It is the outline of a park made in the form of a star," said Emma Usmanova. According to Usmanova, the pentagram was a popular symbol in the Soviet era. Red stars were often used throughout the Soviet Union as a symbol of communism and were decorated on building facades, flags and monuments.
