Hexagonal craters.

How can the hexagon shape be formed due to meteor/asteroid impacts?

How are irregular polygons and similar angles of the crater rim be formed in very different local conditions from very different asteroid types?

Hexagonal craters on Earth, planets, moons and asteroids

Hexagonal craters shape formation

They look to be created as a natural shape, one that nature constantly forms in very different physical environments. Electromagnetic geometry? Atomicmagnetic geometry? Morphicfield geometry?

Mark Slater in a couple of hexagonal comments has suggested some form of magnetic/atom process

Electric Universe theory about hexagon craters and possible explanations of how they were created.

What other possible sources for their formation and shape are there?

    not like my idea?

    • Hello, sorry not really been available to do much apart from a few articles.

      Stephen Smith on Thunderbolts has a good article (as Steve always does) on pyramids in geology and mentions the 120 degrees angle thing – selected quotes below.

      Natural Pyramids https://www.thunderbolts.info/wp/2017/01/06/natural-pyramids/
      When analyzing these shapes, an important fact is that they are not located on Earth, alone, they are also seen on Mars. Elysium Planitia, for example, is composed of fractured terrain with several polygonal landforms that planetary scientists find difficult to explain. When viewed as a three-dimensional anaglyph, the multiple terraces, steep-sided pits and sharp angles are clearly visible. There are 120 degree angles, an identifying characteristic of pyramids … Crater chains are another example of 120 degree angles in their sculpted walls.

      Hexagonal formations are found on almost every planet and moon. It is significant that hexagons are polygons with 120 degree exterior angles. Perhaps the pyramidal peaks are partial hexagons

    After the point of impact, the maximum pressure which all the atoms are under will have the least (if any) amount of space between the atoms, atoms align hexagonally. they cant align any other way under pressure, so the hexagon shape appears, once the pressure/temperature drops this hex shape still pushes other matter outwards resulting in hexagonal dust clouds. the angle, initial shape of the explosion, the material all account for the shapes deformation. its all to do with the position of matter under maximum pressure of the explosion. go to youtube and type in “explosions from above”, select the video of the nuclear explosion, pause this video at 11 seconds in and look at the shape of the dust cloud, its hexagonal. if you start to look more at other explosions you will notice the edge shape of all of them have a 120 degree angle, this is also repeated in hurricanes and the leading edges of storm fronts. it something very obvious alot of people dont notice.

  • Perhaps you might like to take a look at a paper I wrote on this subject in 2015. It’s title is ‘Polygonal crater formation by electrical discharges’ – Wayne Burn, New Concepts in Global Tectonics Journal, Volume 3, Number 2, June 2015.

    Here is a link to the pdf of the relevant journal issue. You’ll find my paper on p 169.
