University of Arizona astronomer Erich Karkoschka … believes that Uranus’s southern hemisphere rotates in a way never before seen in gas giants. A gas planet’s thick atmosphere, filled with clouds, typically shows the same rate of rotation at the top and bottom. But on Uranus, it seems, the southern hemisphere is cycling much more quickly than up north — as much as 15 percent faster.
“The unusual rotation of high southern latitudes of Uranus is probably due to an unusual feature in the interior of Uranus,” Karkoshcka said in a statement. “While the nature of the feature and its interaction with the atmosphere are not yet known, the fact that I found this unusual rotation offers new possibilities to learn about the interior of a giant planet.”
Unusual features, new possibilities, faster movement – these are all highlights of the astrological influence of Uranus on humans.
The synchronicity between the planetary names and their astronomical qualities has always struck me. For example, Uranus rotates on its side, unlike any of the other planets. And one of the archetypes of Uranus is dancing to the beat of your own drummer as they say – following your own star, living your own authentic life.
In ancient times the astrologers WERE the astronomers. It’s nice to see scientists admitting that they don’t have all the answers!
