Uranus

Glyph

  • The Uranus glyph is made up of two crescents of receptivity on either side of the cross of matter,which is on top of the circle of spirit.
  • The two crescents indicate left brain and right brain perceptions, rapid intuition and antennas or radars picking up signals from far and wide.
  • This information is grounded through the cross of matter to bring a new refocused energy to the circle of spirit. The glyph also resembles the letter H, the initial for Herschel, the discoverer of Uranus.

Astronomy

  • Uranus was discovered on 13 March 1781. It is the most eccentric planet in the solar system because of its unconventional orbit. Rotating on its side, it’s tilted at a 97 degree angle, giving it peculiar seasons, long cycles of darkness then sunlight, and a severe energy imbalance causing disturbing 720 km per hr winds. Through a telescope, Uranus appears as a pale blue-green elliptical disk.
  • Diameter: 51,118 km
    Distance from Sun: 2876 million km
    Rotation: 17 hours
    Orbital period: 84 years
    Atmosphere: Hydrogen, helium, methane

Discovery and Naming

  • Discovered by William Herschel 13th March 1781
  • First planet to be discovered with a telescope
  • At first thought to be a comet,
  • Circular orbit, eccentric ellipsis
  • Named Georgium Sidus, after the King
  • Bode (Bodes law) chose Uranus, the Latinized version of the Greek god of the sky god Ouranos.
  • Bode argued that just as Saturn was the father of Jupiter, the new planet should be named after the father of Saturn.
  • In 1789, Bode’s Royal Academy colleague Martin Klaproth named his newly discovered element “uranium” in support of Bode’s choice.
  • Ultimately, Bode’s suggestion became the most widely used, and became universal in 1850 when HM Nautical Almanac Office, the final holdout, switched from using Georgium Sidus to Uranus.
  • Uranus called Georgium Sidus for 80 yearsUranus’s discovery coincided was synchronistic to –1781 – 24 Gemini
