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.

The symbol, consisting of a five-pointed star inside one or two circles, is often associated with satanism

One internet user, Kurt Yates, from Seattle,  Washington, posted on the Live Science website: ‘It’s probably an  abandoned surface to air missile site.

‘I was a military pilot and these things are  all over the place in areas that use(d) Russian (Soviet) air defense systems.

‘The shape has something to do with how their  tracking radars work.

‘Considering the size of it and the proximity  to the Baikonur Cosmodrome, I’d say it possibly was used for tracking Soyuz  rockets or some such.’

The satanic link is further strengthened by  the fact the spot has been highlighted on Googlemaps by two users called ‘Adam’  and ‘Lucifer’, both of which are names associated with the devil.

The pentagram was used as a Christian symbol  in ancient times to represent the five senses and to symbolise the five wounds  of Christ. It was also believe to protect against demons.

Neopagans, such as wiccans, use it as a  symbol of faith similar to the Jewish Star of David. The circle is said to  represent unity and protection.

Satanist pentagrams, are commonly drawn with  two points up and the head of a goat inside and are referred to as the Sigil of  Baphomet.

They are associated with fallen angels and  are used as a sign of rebellion or religious identification.

The three downward points are supposed to  represent the rejection of Trinity.

Military link? One theory is that the pentangle is the remains of a Russian tracking station used to monitor Soyuz rockets
