In the Scottish Rite the central authority is called a Supreme Council.
In the United States of America there are two Supreme Councils: one in Washington, D.C. (which controls the Southern Jurisdiction), and one in Lexington, Massachusetts (which controls the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction).

(4) Did you know there is a hexagon — a 6-sided cloud pattern — in the north pole of the planet Saturn?
The sides of the Saturn’s hexagon are about 8,600 mi long, more than the 7,900-mi diameter of Earth. Saturn’s hexagon rotates with a period of 10h 39m 24s, the same period as the planet’s radio emissions from its interior. There is a vortex inside the hexagon.
Saturn’s hexagon was first discovered by Voyager in 1981 and revisited by Cassini-Huygens in 2006. During the Cassini mission, the hexagon changed from a mostly blue color to more of a golden color. Various explanations for the hexagonal cloud pattern have been offered.
