Oribital period really has to be taken into account in these questions, as does angle to the Plane of the Ecliptic.

And yes, I can feel it. :-D


So. An 'oribital period' has WHAT to do with Uranus? :-? :-b

I guess you're saying that even Earth (happy birthday, BTW) could be closer to Uranus than Saturn, given the plane of the ecliptic, or whatever. I would venture to say that of all the places, Stockton would be the city closest to Uranus than any other as well.

I had a big, long reply typed up to your question, Nfl, but the "Server Cannot Be Found" monster ate it again. :-t

Yes, Earth can be closer to Uranus than any other planet, depending on where they are in their respective orbits, as can Mercury.

Ha...World Net Dailey.

I actually know the guy who founded that website, and a few of the reporters that write for it. It's about even with the Enquirer in terms of credibility.
