Astronomers have recently made a bizarre discovery on the Surface of Saturn’s Moon Dione.

Dione is covered in mysterious stripes like no other moon in the solar system. The Bright long stripes are like nothing astronomers have ever seen, and the strangest part is, no one knows for sure how they got there, or what created them.

According to astronomers, the stripe’s orientation, parallel to the equator, and linearity are unlike anything else we’ve seen in the solar system.
