It’s been a crazy few days in the galaxy far beyond as not only did we have the first ever successful landing on a moving asteroid but according to astronomers, Uranus is “incredibly active”.
Now you’re probably thinking that’s a wonderful punchline for a joke about your anus, but shame on you as that’s no such thing.
This is a very serious topic as a healthy and productive Uranus is vital to the well being of your system, uh, solar system I should say.
In the past Uranus has been void of much action, though it seems as if things are starting to spice up on Uranus and it’s not from a poor choice in diet as the planet has been experiencing a significant amount of unusual activity. Storms have blanketed the planet in recent weeks which has shocked astronomers who suggest this type of activity takes about a four decade break, much like your significant other.
“This type of activity would have been expected in 2007, when Uranus’s once every 42-year equinox occurred and the sun shined directly on the equator,” opined Heidi Hammel of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy. “But we predicted that such activity would have died down by now. Why we see these incredible storms now is beyond anybody’s guess.”
Given the amount of activity being experienced by Uranus, one might be best served to simply enjoy the unusual phenomenon and let nature takes its course.
