December 30, 2014 – A gigantic pentagram was found in Google Maps in an isolated region of Kazakhstan, West of the city of Lisakovsk (coordinates +52° 28′ 47.14″, +62° 11′ 8.38″). The circle’s circumference is over 1000 feet wide and contains a clearly defined, mathematically correct pentagram. The pentacle (a pentagram inside a circle) is used in ritualistic magic and the inverted pentagram is used in black magic.
A few days ago, when one would zoom into the pentagram with Google Maps, two strange locations would pop up, one named “Adam” and another “Lucifer”. However, since the story came out on the web, these locations disappeared and zooming into pentagram is now disabled.
Since yesterday, there is Russian text appearing on the pentagram which is apparently translated to “unfinished summer camp Denisovsky area Kostanay Kazakhstan”. Strange.
On Google Maps (which uses North-South orientation), the pentagram is inverted. Was it meant to be that way? Either way, the symbol is used in ritualistic magic.
Here’ what Manly P. Hall, a 33rd Degree Freemason and expert in occult symbolism wrote about the upright and inverted pentagram:
“In symbolism, an inverted figure always signifies a perverted power. The average person does not even suspect the occult properties of emblematic pentacles. The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed. A good instance of this practice is found in the pentagram, or five-pointed star, made of five connected lines. This figure is the time-honored symbol of the magical arts, and signifies the five properties of the Great Magical Agent, the five senses of man, the five elements of nature, the five extremities of the human body. By means of the pentagram within his own soul, man not only may master and govern all creatures inferior to himself, but may demand consideration at the hands of those superior to himself.
The pentagram is used extensively in black magic, but when so used its form always differs in one of three ways: The star may be broken at one point by not permitting the converging lines to touch; it may be inverted by having one point down and two up; or it may be distorted by having the points of varying lengths. When used in black magic, the pentagram is called the “sign of the cloven hoof,” or the footprint of the Devil. The star with two points upward is also called the “Goat of Mendes,” because the inverted star is the same shape as a goat’s head. When the upright star turns and the upper point falls to the bottom, it signifies the fall of the Morning Star.”

As stated by Hall, “the average person does not even suspect the occult properties of emblematic pentacles” and occultists believe that this symbol has true power. Why is it in this remote location in Kazakhstan?
Some mainstream news sources such as the Daily Mail and Yahoo News quickly associated this story with “conspiracy theories”, stating that it might be a military site or a park. Some articles insist on the fact that the pentagram is Christian symbol while others state that it is Russian symbol. It is however important to point out that Russia used a five-pointed star as one of its symbols, not a pentagram inside a circle.
