Take a look at north pole of Saturn, it's a hexagonal storm, and the south pole is an eye.

It's especially compelling if you look at it from Uranus.

Laboratory experiments demonstrated the possibility of spontaneous polygonal formation in rotating fluids, with the cause attributed to baratropic instabilities arising in the zonal jet flows surrounding the polygons. The laboratory analogue [sic] were found to have zonal flows and vorticity gradients comparable to those observed on Saturn, and is probably the best explanation of Saturn's hexagon we have today.

It remains something of a mystery, but there's no reason to believe there's anything paranormal about it.
