Saturn's Hexagon

There's a strange hexagon shape at the north pole of the planet Saturn.  It was spotted 20 years ago, and Cassini confirms it's still there.  Is it some alien fortress/outpost?  Or something surprisingly cooler?

"Perhaps Josh means anamorphic lens flare, which is not in nature, but the nature of light recording on film."

Actually, I presume he's talking about still-camera lens flare or the apparent shape of points of light in unfocused areas of a photo, but I wanted to make sure before explaining that such phenomena are due to the shape of the aperture.
