Re: Uranus

so any sunlight reflected back to us from the atmosphere will always appear light blue-green

The Sumerian description of the planet - mash.sig - meaning "bright greenish" according to Sitchen was pretty close.

Thanks for the page.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

It is not hard to believe that I know everything. This is due to my advanced age and extremely pointy head.
